Jordans97 writes: I would love to win this! My great-grandma's and my grandma all did beautiful embroidery and I still have many of their stitched items. I always intended to sit with my Grandma and have her teach me (she taught me to cross stitch), but time got away from us and she died at only 67.

I love to cross stitch and have many different kinds of floss and I kept many of my grandma's old transfers (including ones that had belonged to my great-grandma's), and this would be an excellent way to get started. I've browsed so many sites and it's hard to figure out where to start.
