First Friday Freebie #34

I do think that summer has finally arrived here in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia but it seems like it sure took a long time to get here.

For those of us who live in the Northern hemisphere, our summer officially starts in a couple of weeks which will allow you ample time to finish this month's First Friday Freebie.  *wink*

For my friends in the Southern hemisphere, you'll have lots of time to to complete this design before your summer arrives.

My gift to you this month is this Summer Sampler.



To download the PDF file which includes the instructions and line drawing, please click here.

A little closer look...



Have fun, be safe and enjoy those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.


Happy stitching!

Another beauty. I'm spending the day at Fabric Shack then the outlet mall on the way home. No sewing today but I played with my vintage fabrics yesterday. Hot Summer Days have me in the coolness of my sewing studio. :o)

Bev said...

Oh good! Now I have another thing to work on! I'm still trying to do the embroidery from the ROM! I don't know if I will ever get a smooth line. I think it might be my eyes. I did get a magnifying glass thingie to wear around my neck. What needles do you use? So thanks for sharing! You are so talented!

Your sweet little stitching quilt is perfect for next year's entry at Mukwonago Crazy Quilters.com quilt show in April 2014. Red and white quilts are going to be their theme! No black or any other color can be added. Of coarse anyone can enter any color, red & white is only one category.
Thank you so much for the summer stitchery. <3
