A January Free Embroidery


 It's an easy to make design for this month. I don't know about you but I'm dealing with a bit of depression and just don't feel like getting online lately. That's how this month's freebie ended up so simple.

 This has 3 small yo-yos and glass seed beads. I've sewn it to a 6' square of snowflake print fabric with a running stitch. The text is backstitched. The heart is done in chain stitch. The small snowflakes are cross stitch with a straight stitch down the center. A bead is sewn in the center.


 I'm planning on making a heart for each month, sewing it to a 6" square then sew all 12 together with white borders.

Sorry if you've been trying to get in contact with me but I'm spending most of my time working on new designs. If you've been trying to contact me at Facebook I haven't spent much time there either.

 Right click the pattern to save it to your hard drive. You'll need to print a pattern for tracing.

Merry Christmas!

 

Just wanted to stop in and wish all a merry Christmas!

The day's quiet here, just the DH and me, oh and the dogs and cat. They got plenty of gifts to keep them busy till the new year. This is Micah and Dillon. Micah has grown so much since we got him in Oct. He's bigger than the cat now.


 

My print head gave up last week and nothing Canon suggested is working so either I get a new one or replace the print head.  Nice thing about Canon printers is that the print head just pops out! I've found a new lap top I'm mulling over. It's a 17" !!!! Love the big screen!!! Just have to decide whether to go with an 8GB or 16 GB memory. The price jumps quite a bit for the larger amount. Want to wait until next week in hope that the huge amount of packages to be delivered will have shrunk some. I ordered some embroidery floss from the Farmers Attic at etsy. Even though the package was coming from one side of PA to the other it took almost 3 weeks to come here. Would hate to have a computer sit around and possibly get lost or damaged.

 Hope your day has been a happy and healthy one!

Two more free embroidery patterns!

 

I've made 2 more freebies to share. These a larger than the size I've been using for my hearts this year. If you want them smaller just set your printer to print at a smaller size.

The one on the right has pine chenille stems for the hanger. Perfect for large trees or hanging from a door knob. I curled the ends and sewed them to the sides of the stuffed heart, adding bows over the stitches. I stitched the text in green and red. The snowflakes are back stitched lines with silvery beads sewn where the dots are on the pattern. I also sewed beads on the stars in the fabric print. I bought this at Walmart last year. I love snowflake and candy cane prints!

The design on the left is for those who are happy this year is coming to an end. I had this candy print fabric that I used for the bowl (because haven't we all been eating too much of the stuff 😄 ), I then cut out some of the candy and using iron on facing I attached them. I didn't bother to sew them down since I'm not sure what I'll do with this yet.


Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Hope you all stay healthy!

December Embroidery Freebie!

 Ok, here's a new freebie for you. It's a remake of one of the ones I did for VOTE.

I also printed a smaller version to put on my tree skirt. I've been making something for it every year I've been married. The text seemed perfect for this year.

Of course you can draw your own text since you may prefer Merry Christmas, Peace on Earth, LOVE, or even names. Have fun and enjoy the holidays.
