I’m in my mid-ish 30’s (excuse me while I sob uncontrollably). I love coffee, cross stitching, reading, gardening and travel. I hope to pass along some patterns and pick a few up along the way.

Bird of Paradise

This is such a lovely pattern, I got it from a book in the local library. I should take a picture with the digital camera. I seem to be on a bird kick. This is done on 28 ct linen, as are most of the pieces I've stitched.

Ukrainian Peacocks

I took many liberties with this pattern, (click title for a link to the pattern). I think that I will stitch three to five more motifs next to/below this one to make a panel, I think that will be pretty.

Here are some freebies that I made into bookmarks.

DMC booklet pattern

This pattern came from the DMC linen embroidery floss Naturals of DMC booklet. I love the way it came out, I changed the pink vase into a grey pitcher. I have attached a link to the DMC freebie page into this post's title.
