First Friday Freebie #5

Happy New Year to you all!  I hope that you had a great time welcoming in 2010.

border2longer_jpg_w560h78

Here it is, January 1st and the start of a brand new year.   As luck would have it, it’s also the First Friday of the month.

This month’s design is in keeping with winter here in the Northern Hemisphere.  For those of you who are enjoying the heat of the summer at this time, perhaps this project will make you feel a bit cooler.  *wink*

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~

I made two samples of this month’s design, one in redwork and the other in bluework.  I’ll leave it up to you to decide which one you would like to try or perhaps you might want to make them both as I did.

border2longer_jpg_w560h78

In my previous two posts, I alluded to a little “surprise”.   This month marks my first year blogging anniversary.  I have had so much fun over the past year and as a small token of my appreciation to those that find their way here, I would like to offer one of this month’s finished projects as my gift to you. 

In order to be entered in the draw, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  Just tell me which one you would like to win, the red one or the blue one.  I will do a random number generator draw on Monday, January 4th and will announce the winner on Tuesday, January 5th.  Please make sure that I can contact you by email.  If you are a ‘no-reply’ blogger and do not leave an email address in your comment, I’ll have to ‘spin the wheel’ again .  I will gladly ship internationally as well.

Edit: The drawing is now closed.  The winner of one of the FFF pillows will be announced tomorrow (January 5th) morning.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

So without further ado, here is this month’s FFFFirst Friday Freebie called “Let It Snow”.  The finished dimensions are 8” x 7”.  You may enlarge or reduce the pattern to suit your needs.

Here’s a closer look at the redwork sample…

And the bluework one…

If you’d like,  please grab my First Friday Freebie button (by right clicking and saving) from my sidebar and place it on your sidebar with a link  back here in order for us to share it with those who might not otherwise find their way here.  The button will also serve as a reminder that on the First Friday of each month there will be another new Freebie design available for you to enjoy. 

Thanks again to my amazing friend Robyn for creating the PDF file.  Without her help and patience, I wouldn’t be able to make these designs available to you.

Thanks for stopping by and as always…

Happy stitching…and Happy New Year!

Kaaren ♥

Hi Kaaren
I really enjoy the FFF's! this one is too cute.. I have already traced a few older FFF's to start working on christmas presents for THIS year (it is only 356 days away apparently)...

take care and happy 2010 to you and your mob :O)

Happy New Year!, Kaaren. Those stitcheries are so cute. I want to try redwork this year (because I don't have enough other projects to do, LOL) I didn't realize it can be done in blue, too. I like them both. thanks for the chance to win.

Happy new year to you too Kaaren. May your year be filled with lots of creative blessings. If I'm lucky enough to be your random generator number then I'd love to give the Red stitchery a home in New Zealand. Hugs Jxx

Happy New Year!!! Congratulations on your one year anniversary. I love this months pattern. It is so nice. I love both of them. But the blue one is my favorite. I can`t wait to get started on this one. Thanks for sharing it with us. Hugs Ariane

I think this may be my favorite pattern yet! I'm leaning towards the red one, just because it's colorful, but both are beautiful.

Congratulations on your blogiversary!

Happy New Year. I have so enjoyed all the Friday freebies so far. Thank you for your generosity, giving us all these patterns. I particularly like the blue snowman, although there's no sign of snowmen downunder at the moment.

Kaaren,
Thank you for another wonderful design this month. If I'm the lucky winner, I'd love the blue snowman. I like the pearl accents. If I don't win, I guess I'll just have to make it myself. Best wishes in 2010.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary. I found your blog a few months ago. Thanks for providing a free monthly stitchery project. Stitcheries are the perfect winter project. The snowman is so cute. I particularly like the red one.

I'm a beginning blogger. I'll be adding a link to your blog on mine.

Thanks again.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary! You have been a wonderful inspiration for creativity in a sometimes bland world. Thank you. If you should draw me, I would love to have the blue one, since blue is my favorite color --- or was that red. Thanks again for everything.

Ooo, I Love the snowman design with the little bird on his arm. So sweet! You are such a talented lady. Congratulations, Kaaren, on 1 year blogging! Thank you for the opportunity to win... the red one is my choice. May 2010 bring you much joy!

While blue is my favourite colour, I think the red is just so stunning. And besides, red is my mom's favourite colour.
