Giveaway Winner + Some Embroidery Transfers

As you may know, lucky reader Jane guessed what I did on my summer vacation:  I spent some time in  Belfast, Northern Ireland, and also went to Dublin, Ireland.  I suspect that she may have used her super library-sleuthing skills to find an answer fast!  Jane has won a copy of McCall's 3979, vintage-style aprons:

But take heart, dear readers,  I scoured the web for a couple of embroidery patterns that celebrate all things Celtic and Irish as a consolation prize for you.  Click on the links below the images to access the patterns.

First, you can generate free cross stitch charts for names and phrases in a Celtic-style type at Celtic Cross Stitch.

If all goes well, next week will bring some new changes to the look of the blog, so there may be some intermittent times that the blog is unavailable. Hopefully that will not happen, but I wanted to give you some notice.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend and I'll see you here for Madison Avenue Monday next week!
