Have you been following the free monthly charts from DMC Italy?


There is one for each month, so if you aren’t following either Arcobaleno Ricami or DMC, l’arte del filo on Facebook, go check them out for some really cute charts.

Have a wonderful week.



Give Thanks

I hope you were as blessed with family and friends for Thanksgiving as we were.  We had a such a special gathering this year.  Here are my tables set last night before the big event today.  We were pretty packed in, 21 happy contributors of the blessings in our lives.  I couldn’t ask for more.

Plum Street Samplers issued this “Give Thanks” pattern in 2011.  It’s timeless and something to remember with a grateful heart.  Mine is so full right now.

I also wish that I’d seen this Give Thanks freebie from Herrschner’s before now because I would have made it for one of my breadcloth’s for Thanksgiving. Oh well, maybe I’ll get it done in time for next year!


Now be careful out there this weekend shopping at all those “special deals”.

Until next week…
