First Friday Freebie #7 – March

Last Sunday morning, while doing a bit of housework trying to fill in time until the start of the gold medal hockey game between Canada and the United States, an idea for a new design popped into my head.  After some quick sketching and even speedier stitching, a new design was born, just in time for this month’s First Friday Freebie.

I had actually completed another design that was designated for this month and it was all ready to go but when I realized that Easter is early this year and if I waited until next month to come up with something for Easter, it would be too late for this year.  So the design that was originally slated for this month has been set aside until next month.  

I hope you enjoy my Easter Sampler.

Enjoy and as always…

Happy stitching!

A very cute pattern to get us in the mood for Easter. The cross stitch suggests an influence from another source? Your stitchery is coming along beautifully. Love watching its progress.

You stitch fast! I was wondering why you chose to make a new design instead of what you had planned. It makes sense. A very cute design!
