Martine Spring Freebie

Here is a beautiful pattern from Martine.  It was published in 2013 and is 76 X 76 points. If you stitched it on 28 count fabric, 2 over 1, it would be 2 ¾ by 2 ¾ inches.

Enjoy, and have a good week!



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.

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.
