Hey, I'm early again! It's the last freebie of the year!


This is very unusual for me to be early. I'm always running late for everything but I thought since I'm sitting here watching NBC's tree lighting and the Graceland special I'd get the design up. All I can say is WOW after hearing John Legend. I also loved Cher and Darlene Love. So good!!!!!

Back to why we're here,the last free pattern of the year! I have a funny story about it. I was all set to sew all the pieces to a tote bag but can't find it now that I moved things around in my sewing/craft room. This happens a lot since I have 2 rooms for my hobbies and move things from one to the other when I start re-arranging things. Thank goodness I had already taken the pic of the finished piece so I can at least get it up and the pattern. Unfortunately I don't have the thread numbers or other info. The leaves are stem stitches and lazy daisy stitches. The flowers are spider web roses. The house is done the same as the other houses.

Dec 20 update- Yay! I found the pattern with all the info. The base was couched with all 6 strands using 2 strands (DMC 310). Do 3 rows. The circle at the top is 6 strands to stem stitch. You could couch it instead. The flowers are 2 strands for the spider web lines and 4 strands to weave (DMC 552). The greenery is 2 strands to stem stitch the stems and fill in with lazy daisy stitches (DMC 702).

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