Two contests that I know of that is still on:
1. Win silk threads from Dinky Dyes. Details on their website:www.dinkydyes.com
2. Sampler contest. You get to stitch a sampler with your own colour of choice. Design will be provided. But to enter the contest you need to join the weihenburg group at this website if you are interested - firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a peek at my progress. For now I am going to stitch up the design and hopefully will be up to it to add some beads to spruce it up a little. The deadline is 25 November 2010.
Materials used: Belfast linen - 32 count - grey, DMC thread nos. 99, 815, red variegated thread (Ondori)and a multicoured thread - no name - from Diane, USA ( from NNC's birthday exchange).
