EMS Winter Birdhouse

This small stitchery comes from EMS.

Start here. In the center column of the page that loads, find the tab that says “Free”. Once the new page opens, you will see below a link that reads:

EMS Cross Stitch Board

Please note that you have to be a registered member in order to be able to download the free charts.

There is no charge to join and this gives you access to other free charts.

Once there click on the DOWNLOADS tab (5th one across the top)

Once there you can select the format of the design you like, PDF, PAT, which is for the product PCStitch, or Machine Embroidery Format.

Scroll through the patterns until you locate this one. If you choose PDF, the whole pattern will download as a PDF.


It sounds like a lot of steps but it’s not too complicated.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend.



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!
