At long last…another First  Friday Freebie!  Woo hoo!

I don’t know for how long but I’m happy to say that for as long as I’m able, I’m hoping to be back here on the First Friday of every month with a new design for you to enjoy.

To celebrate the month of September and the anticipation of autumn, this month’s FFF is called…

Thanks so much. I have missed your designs. Glad you are feeling up to doing them again. Enjoy the fall weather.

KaHolly said...

Kaaren, You have so generously shared your gift with many of your past designs. They are all wonderful. But this one, September Song, is by far your greatest achievement in more ways than one. I wasted no time printing a copy so that I could get right to work. Originally, preparing block #5 of Raggedy and Friends was at the top of my weekend to-do list. I've just moved it down to task #2. Thank you very much. ~karen

Kaaren,

Thank you for all the lovely patterns that you allow us to share.

I am a technophobe and don't really have much in the way of computer skills. I put your name on a prayer request list on the site of Father Fernando, a healer. I am so happy that you are feeling better.

Glad to hear that you are moving along with whatever needs to be done. We are all out here pulling, praying for, and thinking of you.

Thanks so much, Kaaren! I was humming along as I read the verse.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

What a lovely stitchery! You so amaze me! With every thing that is going on in your life, you make time to give to others! I'm in awe! You are so sweet! Thank you! Gentle hug!

Judy S. said...

Thanks, Kaaren! This is a great design from one of my very favoritest musicals. Love it.

Norma said...

I love this pattern, and plan to trace it soon. So glad you are feeling better, and how lucky we are that you still want to share your talent.

I have a question, when the pattern was printed out, there is a disclaimer about how we can used this pattern. It is normal and I completely understand the need for it. What I do not understand is how you can use the word (someone else wrote) from a song and not give credit to the writer? I would think that this is "borrowed" and that writer deserves the same consideration that you do? Just wondering how it all works.

missthesea said...

I just stumbled across your blog last night and wanted to say hello! Your blog is just wonderful I'm so glad to have found it :)

edyB said...

Thanks so much for another beautiful FFF! You are so kind to share with us.
Glad you're feeling better and those good thoughts are still be sent your way.
Take care!
