At long last, the Betsy PIF

I promised to do this a few weeks ago, so I'm offering it up now. Here is your chance to stitch our gal, Betsy, by Sheepish Designs. Our home is pet-ful (I guess that's the opposite of pet-free), but I don't recall him showing any interest in this chart. If you would like to stitch it, here are "the rules":

1. To enter, please leave your name and email address in a comment on this post. Tell me why you want to stitch this chart.

2. This is a used chart. I wish I had a pristine copy of it, but I don't. Please understand what you are getting. You can still stitch from it just fine--after all, I did the bulk of my stitching from this chart in this condition--but it's not perfect.

3. You may not sell this chart. I don't think that's too much to ask. I paid $8 for it, and I'm giving it away. Please do the same, through a PIF when you're finished.


I will take comments through midnight, US Eastern time, on Friday, March 4. I'll announce the winner on Sunday, March 6, sometime in the afternoon.

Good luck.

Dear Rachel:
Please enter me in the PIF for the Betsy chart. I love that the chart is sweetly primitive and patriotic. I have been trying to find the pattern for purchase with no luck! I can't think of any other reason for you to send it to me except that I will gladly give it to someone else when I am finished. Plus, I live in Maryland, too, so it would save postage to send it me - LOL!
Please keep stitching - I love seeing all of your work unfold throughout the months. Karen K. in MD.

Rachel, I would love to be able to stitch Betsy! I do not have much of America or patriotic stitching. I love sheep and I love that Besty is sewing that flag!! I would also pass this chart on to someone else for their pleasure. I Hope the chart can come to stay for awhile in the fur-home. lol

I have wanted to do this design for years! I have tried to buy it on e-bay to no avail. I have begged people for this design to no avail. Of course, I would drop what I am stitching to do this design and will PIF very quickly. I would greatly appreciate the chance of having this design. Thanks. Deborah sammi916@comcast.net

I have searching for this for years with no luck. And when I saw your progress on her I got so excited and then to hear you were going PIF.. Yiipppeee. I hope to one day have a WHOLE wall full of stitched patriotic theamed pieces so I think she would be the perfect addition. And of course I would PIF after I was finished. Thank you so much for kindly passing this on to another stitcher. XXFINGERSXX crossed that I win :)

Hi Rachel! When I first saw you working on Betsy, I fell in love with her (and those sweet sheep). I've never stitched a Sheepish Design before and think this would be a great way to start. I've always made it my policy to PIF on any chart I have been lucky enough to have had passed along to me (in fact I'm having one on my blog right now if you're interested!). I think that is half the fun--sharing in another stitcher's pleasure :)

Thanks for the chance!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
