A Giveaway by Bethany

We have been watching Bethany's progress on the beautiful Rising Doves and finding out more about Bethany today from her interview with Deb.





Bethany has very generously donated the surplus linen  from Rising Doves - a piece of 36ct. Edinburgh Linen, (Days Gone By), measuring 26X22, with an additional tail at one end measuring 10X12.

To be entered into the giveaway leave a comment taking a guess how many Scarlet Letter samplers Bethany has stitched over the years.

The closest guess will win and if there are more than one correct answer Bethany will draw a name.

Good luck everyone and a BIG thank you to Bethany for the giveaway.

Wow! Bethany has stitched some real beauties. I love her sampler wall. I will guess that she has stitched 33 SL samplers.

I was looking at her finished pieces and saw the 'Glory' sampler (a tattered American flag). Can anyone tell me the designers name? I really love that one and would dearly like to stitch it. Thank you in advance for the info.
