Country Cottage

It’s always nice to have a card that expresses care above and beyond the everyday card. Here is a country cottage card stitchery from Cross-stitching .com that would be a delight for someone to receive from you.

Since my sister-in-law was showing off her snowdrops that have just emerged


I thought I’d share this chart from Durene Jone’s Facebook page from last year.


They are such a wonderful harbinger of Spring.

Have a great week and a great Valentine’s Day.


Valentine Bear

Durene Jones shared this darling little valentine bear on her Facebook page this week.  You can find him here. You must be logged in and you may have to scroll down a bit to see the image like this one.


Once there you only need to save it off as an image.  All of the colors are listed.  Loving the heart sky background.

Have fun with it.


Pearls & Rosebuds

This is a Scissor Fob freebie from The Drawn Thread is called Pearls & Rosebuds. The image shown here is the chart worked up by Carol and shown off on the Freebie Gallery.  It’s been around for a long while but it is still a beautiful way to keep track of your scissors.


Hope your Friday is going well and you are blessed with a restful weekend.



If you follow the link here, you will find DMC, l’arte del filo. Translated to English it means DMC, the wire art. They have many free charts for you to download.

I particularly liked this one (Pianta grassa fiorita)


and this one (Sedum Aurora)


They will say GRATIS in the price field if they are free. The download button reads: SCARICA LO SCHEMA.  You will be required to give them your email address.

Have a nice look around.  You are very likely to find others you like.
