Default Freebies (kinda long)

In the process of packing for upcoming move, I've run across several
extra copies of DMC free charts. I would like to share these with
non-USA stitchers first, on a first-come-fist-serve basis; then USA
stitchers if any remain.

Send me an e-mail with your request, including your mailing address, by
5:00 PM USA Eastern Time, Wednesday, April 8, 1998. That night I'll
sort them by location and time of arrival, and post them 4/9 or 4/10
(depends on how the packing is going).

I've checked the postage requirements, and know that each chart will run
me a bit in postage --- but all I'd like in return is a picture postcard
of a local site or scene after you receive the chart(s). I'll send my
address when I confirm you will be receiving your requested chart(s).

This is meant as a "good" diversion for me from the drudgery and anxiety
of packing, showing house, etc., etc. If I go crazy in the meantime,
I'll try to let you know.:-)

Errrrrr, did you notice that you're replying to a post
from *last century*?

I highly doubt that the OP will ever see your reply much
less still have the charts and be willing to mail them
considering the current crisis.

If you're looking for freebies, I've got one already up
on my website (a sampler, Heart's Desire) plus another one
should be going live either tonight or tomorrow (a bookmark,
Find the Key to the Mystery).

Look for them at
http://logicalinsight.net and click on the
Around the House topic to see a list of patterns and other
articles on the right side of your browser.

Nyssa,
