In Spring our friend Carol had a giveaway for a chart called Gathering Eggs. It is a chart taken from a magazine by Nora Corbett. I know, because I have the same chart, and I too planned to give it away. I am doing that now.
Our friend Jo was the winner of this chart from Carol. Would you perhaps like to stitch this along with Jo? Or did you enter that giveaway, and would you like another chance now? If you would like this chart, please understand these are two pattern pages taken from an older magazine. I will fold these to fit in a business size envelope to save on postage. This giveaway is open to all of my followers. Please leave me a comment telling me you would like the chart. This giveaway will end on Friday August 4th.
When Sarah Brown, daughter of abolitionist John Brown, realizes that her artistic talents may be able to help save the lives of slaves fleeing north, she becomes one of the Underground Railroad’s leading mapmakers, taking her cues from the slave code quilts and hiding her maps within her paintings. She boldly embraces this calling after being told the shocking news that she can’t bear children, but as the country steers toward bloody civil war, Sarah faces difficult sacrifices that could put all she loves in peril.
Eden, a modern woman desperate to conceive a child with her husband, moves to an old house in the suburbs and discovers a porcelain head hidden in the root cellar—the remains of an Underground Railroad doll with an extraordinary past of secret messages, danger and deliverance.
Ingeniously plotted to a riveting end, Sarah and Eden’s woven lives connect the past to the present, forcing each of them to define courage, family, love, and legacy in a new way.
Thank you for your wonderful friendship in my time of sorrow over our Mabel. I appreciate you all.
I hope you have a stitchtastic weekend my friends!
