Big Sale at my Etsy store

I decided to run a December sale and it's 25% off all PDF patterns including this new one I just finished for Christmas. I've never run such a large discount and it will go away on Jan 5,2022.

Ok, I admit I'm not a church goer but I do believe. And at this time of year when so many people are concerned with the amount of gifts they want, have to  buy, and all the expense I felt the need to design this passage. It's a reminder that Christmas isn't a day to fill the house with gifts but with compassion for others.

Hope your holiday, no matter how or what you celebrate, is filled with love.

December Free Embroidery


Here's an easy embroidery for December. Many of you may be really busy getting ready for the holidays so I wanted to do something with just embroidery, no applique. The outer edge is just 2 rows if stem stitch with all 6 strands of floss. I then added seed beads in between the rows. The rest of the embroidery back stitch and french knots with 3 strands of floss. This would be great done on a dark fabric and the poinsettias done in white.

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