I have no desire to keep my cross stich charts once I have finished stitching them and am happy to pass them on to another stitcher, who wants to stitch a chart themself, free of any charge.

  Below is how it works: 

  1. Flash Chart Adoptions can be posted on any day of the week at any time.
  2. Flash Chart Adoptions can last from one hour to several days – you will not know how long the window is open to leave your comment (only I will know what I have chosen for the time period); every Flash Chart Adoption will last for a different time period than the last .
  3. You must have a US Mailing address to participate.
  4. Only one comment per Flash Chart Adoption post so be sure you have all the info in there you need before you hit send – proof read that comment carefully!!!  Leaving more than one comment under any circumstance automatically makes you ineligible.
  5. You must leave a comment on the specific Flash Chart Adoption post with the name of the chart being offered for adoption for that flash challenge (which I will either type in the blog post or will clearly be visible on a photo of the chart) – the name of the chart not the designer.   You can still leave comments on posts that contain a flash chart adoption (because normally I’m talking about additional stuff other than just the flash challenge), but only comments that include the correct chart name will make you eligible to possibly adopt that chart.
  6. When the time period has expired, a person will be picked at random to receive the chart.  I will email that person privately to let them know they have been chosen and edit the original flash challenge post to indicate the time period has expired and that Flash adoption is over.  I will also post the recipient of the flash challenge in either that same blog post or the blog post done after the flash adoption closes.
  7. The person chosen responds to my email with their mailing address and I pop the chart in the mail to them.
  8. If you have been chosen and fail to respond to my email with your mailing address within a week from the date I sent you an email letting you know you, I will pick another adoptee from the original respondents to that FCA.
  9. Do NOT use words like “win, free, giveaway” in your comment – that just brings in people looking for free stuff, not actual blog readers – and if you do you will be ineligible.

Simple rules right?   If you have never left a comment on my blog before or have not left one in a long time, it will not immediately appear but will automatically be held until I go in and approve it as not spam.  Never fear, I will approve any pending approval emails that have come in prior to the close of the challenge.

Happy Stitching!
