Thank you for such a lovely chart and the extras you included will come in very handy.
Thank you for your kindness.
I will be posting out a RAK of my own in the next week or so to someone who has a chart on their wishlist that I have in my stash. I have finished with it and now it can go to a new home. Who will be the lucky recipient!!!!!

Thank you so much Lynda. I have never seen a Halloween version of the JCS. When I lived in the UK we used to have Halloween parties but it isnt something we tend to celebrate in Ireland. I think I will just have to plan our own celebration now I have charts to make!!!
Thank you so much both of you xxx
Now I feel a bit cheeky but I wonder if I can some of you to do another RAK. Not for me but for a little girl called Ellie. Ellie has NFI which causes tumours. At the moment she is halfway through 18 months of chemotherapy to shrink a tumour in her brain. Ellie is asking people to send her get well cards. Thats all. Just a card.
This is Ellie's address:
97 Priory Lodge
And this is Ellie's blog.
As her address is on the blog it is fine to show it here also. (Good point though xx)
There hvent been recent posts as Ellie has been having a bad time with the chemo and her bloods. I only had 3 months of chemo: I cant even begin to imagine how you get through 18 months. I hope it is ok to post this here...I wont put it up again xxx Thank you

I was just about to start my first RAK, and then realized that I don't have enough info on the person to make it feel truly personal.
If anyone would like to receive an RAK from me (I can crochet & sew if that helps), please leave me a comment with your birthday and favorite color.
I'd really love to send you something in your favorite color close to your b-day! It's not a problem if your birthday has already passed. :)

Here's what she sent me:
I'll be passing along the pattern once I finish it. :)
Thanks so much Gaynor! You really made my day!

Then the next day, this is what I found..
Thank you Angela for the master address list. I am ready getting my list in order!
I'm overwhelmed at the amount of RAK's that are already being sent and we've just started! I wasn't expecting quite so much "traffic" and have been swamped with address requests the past few days :)
I'm hoping that it would be OK for me to send all the members a document with every one's address so we will all have the addresses for our use when needed?
Can every member please email me at apxstitchatgmaildotcom to let me know if they are a yes or no to me sharing their addresses with other members asap I would appreciate it :) I think this might be the easiest way around the issue since I'm trying to cut back on my computer time not increase it. I want to spend more time stitching :) I'm sure you understand, LOL!
Thanks for your help and understanding!
Post dated to stay at the top for about a week

Today I received a Shepherds bush pattern, charms and a card with counting pins attached.
I also wanted to say thank you again to Gaynor for the wonderful Lizzie Kate design she sent...Sweet Simple Things...one of the inspirational boxers. I know you know how much I love this one, and I can't wait to stitch it up.

Thank you Lynn. I was truly touched by your kindness. I've been down with this flu bug and yesterday you made my day!
This pattern is so special to me. I remember this saying from my childhood. Thank you for the overdyed floss. I can't wait to try them out.

Thank you SO MUCH Carolyn! I've already started it! :D
Being blessed with so many RAKs has got my mind spinning with possibilities of goodies for me to send. I'll be running out to the store soon, so hopefully I'll find what I'm looking for. :)
Thanks again Carolyn!
I'd like to offer a few patterns to new homes as RAK's, if you are interested, please post by Friday as to which you would like to be considered for, I will then pick the names on Saturday and post the results. If there is more than one person I will draw names, if you name is chosen for 1 and you put in for more than one, I will not include your name on the next pattern, if there aren't any takers, then I will include all that you have requested. humm, I hope I made sense.
These patterns are in excellent condition,
Little House Needleworks- Winter Plaid
Erica Michaels- Stitchers Blessing
Lizzie Kate- Time for God
Winter In a Box- Knotted Tree
Silver Creek Samplers- Eye of the Sparrow
Have a wonderful evening!

I thought as its my birthday today it would be a great day to do my first RAK.....yippeeee.
I would like to offer a Mirabilia Chart 'The Bliss Fairy' to a new home - its brand new, so excellent condition chart. I have had this chart for years and never got round to stitching her.
Please leave a comment if you are interested and I will pick a name at random on Sunday evening (CET).
**A name has been picked and on its way to a new home**
Love Lesleyanne xxx
My name is Fiona and I live in the northwest highlands of Scotland. I enjoy stitching a wide variety of designs. Some of my favourites are Blackbird Designs and Mirabilia. I have just recently started my first HAED called Footprints and I have Scarlet Letter's Janet Burnet Samplet waiting in the wings. This will be a lot of fun and I am looking forward to sending out my first RAK in the next couple of weeks.
I'm trying to organize my stash, and I came across some duplicate magazines that I wanted to offer to all of you. If anyone is interested in any or all, please comment and let me know which ones . If more than one person wants one, I will close my eyes and pick a name!
The magazines I have are the following:
- Just Cross Stitch 2011 Christmas Ornament Issue
- Just Cross Stitch Annual Halloween Preview Issue 2009
- Just Cross Stitch Annual Halloween Preview Issue 2010
- Just Cross Stitch Annual Christmas Preview Issue 2009
- Just Cross Stitch Annual Christmas Preview Issue 2010
- Just Cross Stitch Annual Christmas Preview Issue 2011
I'll leave this open through Sunday night and get them out next week.

I am a great fan of HAED and Mirabilia stitching, at the moment I am working on a HAED design (you can see my progress on my blog: myfrozensunshine.blogspot.com).
I have a wishlist on 123stitch under the email firstname.lastname@example.org or HAED chart list on my blog.
I look forward to Rak'ing with you and have some ideas.
Thank you for accepting me.

Like Bianca - I would like to start out Raking some of my unused charts if anyone is interested.
These charts are brand new (new condition) - never been stitched - and I would like to gift them to someone that would like to stitch them.
Please leave a comment if you are interested. If I have multiple folks interested in a particular chart, I will pick a name @ random and surprise the winner! If you are interested in more than one, don't be shy - let me know. I would really like someone to get use out of these brand new charts as I know I won't get to them.
I will be adding a few surprises to the charts as well ... :) I will pull names Monday and begin gathering everything together and getting them in the mail.
Here are the charts available for adoption:
Prairie Moon - Angel Weathervane
Bent Creek - Long Winter
Bent Creek - Blackbird Sampler
Bent Creek - Redbird Sampler
Bent Creek - Neighborhood Row
Bent Creek - Cabin in the Woods
Bent Creek - Signs of Autumn , Signs of Summer, Signs of Spring, Signs of Winter

I have mailed out a surprise RAK to one of you :) I hope it arrives quickly. I'll be attempting to mail out 1 RAK per month, alternating between stitched and not stitched. I am looking forward to passing along a little "kindness".
Happy 2013 to all!
I have recieved an RAK from Lynda: a chart which was very unexpected...and I have sent my first RAK. Whilst I would love to send something handmade with every RAK, being in Ireland means I would have to buy from someone's wishlist from the USA, have it sent to me and then send it back, usually to the USA lol, so if I go the wishlist way, I will have things sent straight from the retailer. I hope that is ok xxxxxx
And if you make a wishlist on 123 stitch, unless you press 'save', only you will be able to see it. can you please go and click save and make sure we can see it...thank you xx
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
