Another Fine Freebie

frenchbanner Here is a nice freebie from ‘Des Filles et une Aiguille‘, a French web site that translated means something like ‘Girls and a   Needle’.  While you are there you might want to check out some of their tutorials.  Even though they are in French, the illustrations almost don’t need words, and if you do need clarification, you can copy and past into Google Translate which will automatically detect the language and convert it to the language you choose.

Thanks for stopping by,



Remember This?

bunny Last week I gave you this link.   I thought it was a neat design so I stitched it up.  It goes together quickly so you might want to consider doing for yourself.

Bunny TrailIt was a great weekend with granddaughter but I had very little time for stitching.  Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.


Do You Hear the Sounds of Spring?

EMS2010_April_04 Around here in the Northwest, we are beginning to hear the songs of spring birds, things are starting to push up through the ground and my primroses are starting to bloom.  When I saw this lovely pattern I immediately thought, ‘Oh, Spring is really coming!”  It’s on the EMS cross-stitch site, and the PDF is here.   And while you are there you may want to get January, February, and March as well.

DMC also has a neat Primrose chart here.  You must establish a username and password but then you have access to all of their free charts. Primrose

Have a wonderful weekend!
