Pillow With Embroidered Branch

This very pretty design comes from the Danish web site Hendes Verden.


They used DMC floss colors, no. 469, 470, 471 and 937

The instructions are in Danish of course, but if you look for these words, “Se diagrammet til pude med broderet gren her” which translated says, ” See the diagram for cushion with embroidered branch here” you will find the link to the PDF. I used Google Translate so that I could read the whole page and appreciate how they made their beautiful pillow for Spring.

Enjoy, and I hope you have a wonderful week coming up.



Seed Planting Time

Here are some cute seed packet designs to put together.  They are from Leisure Arts and if you go here you can follow their instructions to get the PDF for these.  Scroll down until you see, “GARDEN FRESH SEED PACKETS”.

I like the way they used them to adorn a wreath for a spring door decoration.


Hope the weather matches the fact that it is officially Spring!


Spring Freebie

The World of Cross Stitching posted this from their Facebook page. It’s an offering from Heritage Crafts. Isn’t this little guy adorable!

The link that they send you to is here. Once there, they will tell you everything you need and give you access to two PDF files, one for the stitchery, one for outlining.

Have fun with it and have a great week.


Easter Egg Bunny

Here is another cute Easter bunny to put together. The idea comes from Art & Ricamo and she points to Sylvia’s for the pattern. Here the pattern is set for all one color, but you can see it’s easy to mix it up.

She also specifically has a PDF to download that says Easter.  Just scroll down to the end of the post and click on the link that reads, “PDF Download Easter / Easter / Paques”. From there, she gives you a choice.

It would make a cute ornament for an Easter Egg Tree.

Have a wonderful weekend!
