I recently come across a new blog called Cross Stitch Review. Her tag line is "I peek inside the chart packets for you", and that is exactly what she does. Her name is Mel and it seems she has one very impressive stash as most everything she has reviewed is something she is stitching or has stitched. And so far pretty much everything she has reviewed has been something totally new for me. This is a great blog to find out about new to you designers.
She also has giveaways, one of which I recently won from Tea Party Revolution. So far they have all been open worldwide and not many people have been entering so the odds are good right now, but I know that isn't going to last much longer.
Every post has a review of the chart or recently she has also started reviewing thread, places where you can purchase the chart all around the world and different fabrics or thread that would work with the chart. She really knows her stuff and is very enjoyable to read. Go check it out!
