It's amazing how this blog can reach so many readers. I am very thankful.
In February 2014, I wrote a stitch guide for the Charley Harper canvas, "Manatee in a Mangrove" (Treglown Designs • CH-M062).

Last month I received an email from the director of the Sun Region, EGA in Florida. Their region is holding their retreat May 4 & 5, 2014 at Crystal River; the wintering location for manatees.

We will be holding a fund raising activity and would love to include the Charley Harper manatee canvas and your stitch guide. The canvas is perfect for our event. Thanks so much for posting it on your blog."
The canvas & threads were gathered and sent from The Nimble Needle-Atlanta. My stitch guide was sent, too.
