Good day, fellow stitchers (and aspiring stitchers)!
I stumbled across this beautiful free cross-stitch pattern, designed and donated graciously by With Thy Needle and Thread, It reminded me so much of summer that I wanted to share it with you. The title of the pattern is May Day Sampler.
I have a project that I adore that I am in the process of finishing now. I don’t normally like to have too many needlework projects going at once. For me, it seems that NOTHING ever gets completed when I do have too many irons in the fire.
Here is the file for the free chart: You will need to highlight the link below. Right click on ‘Save link as’, then save file as : May Day Sampler on your computer. Locate the file, then click on it and resize it to about 50%. Print and start stitching!
I have some WONDERFUL primitive patterns in the works. The theme of my patterns are mostly autumn and winter based, with a few Valentine’s Day thrown in for good measure. Be sure to check back often to see when they are available for purchase. The patterns will all be e-patterns to expedite the receipt of your purchase. If you are anything like me, you want them as fast as you can get them, and I don’t think you can get any faster than downloading them instantly after payment. 🙂
Have you ever heard of a Mystery Sampler? This is a really neat idea for those of us who like surprises. This is a series of patterns (usually at least 3) that are released one by one, spread over a period of time. So, the finished product is a ‘mystery’ until you receive all the patterns. The first pattern will tell you how big your fabric should be so you have plenty to finish all the pieces of the ‘mystery’. I have my first pattern to start and I do know that it is a Christmas themed series. I can’t wait to see the rest of the patterns. If you haven’t tried a Mystery Sampler, give it a shot. I think you will find it intriguing.
Until next time, and, as always, be kind to each other.
Peace and All Good Things.
