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.



Winter Scene

This pattern was posted on Embroidered Journal of IsaHV in October 2005.  It’s one of those timeless stitcheries. If you like it just go here and see how it’s been done two different ways and pick one of your choosing.


Thank you for stopping by.  Have a safe and warm weekend.




Lacey Pattern

I think this cross stitch from nu+note is so pretty. It’s a perfect design for a box or jar top, or maybe the edging down the side of a stitchery for a quote. This is a Japanese site so you will need to have Google or your preferred translator. The link to the pattern is embedded in the text so, look for “of chart print is here“.  The Japanese reads, “・印刷はこちらからどうぞ☆”

Here is how she added it to bedding?  I hope you like it as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by.


ABC from 2011

When I logged in today I discovered that all of my links no longer went to the same places I’d pointed them to originally, so I’m loading this freebie for today.  Maybe they’ll get their site corrected soon and I’ll repost the one intended for today.

Accueil posted this pretty little stitchery back in 2011, but the pattern is timeless and will make a great scissor keeper or pin keep.

The pattern is on the same page so just go here to save it for yourself.

Enjoy your sewing!


Christmas Stocking

I managed to finish up another tree ornament this week.  It’s quite small (1 3/4 inches wide by 3 3/4 inches tall).  I stitched it 1 over 1 on 28 count evenweave.

This really cute cross stitch stocking comes from Cross Stitching Guild via their Facebook page.  Just go here and check it out for yourself.  You will have to scroll down a bit to find it since it was posted on December 4th, 2015.  As you will see I changed mine a bit by making it all trees in the bottom section.

Have a great weekend and don’t get run over by any frantic shoppers.
