FREE Easter Joy Cross-Stitch Pattern

Easter is all about joy, so I thought I would spread a little of my own with this free, one-of-a-kind cross-stitch pattern:

This darling project will be about 14×21.5 inches when complete (based on a standard 14 ct. aida cloth, although you can use any size you like).  Chart comes complete with the list of DMC floss needed.

Please send me photos when you’re done with this piece – I would love to see this adorable chickie finished!

Home is where the ART is.

I love finding new ways to use paper!
I made these fun wooden plaques using the $1 wood ovals from Michaels.
I painted the sides with dark brown and then used hot glue on the front to paste down my favorite Cosmo Cricket Gretel paper.  I sanded the paper to give it a good edge, flush with the wood and to antique it a bit.
The letters were cut from my Cricut and then decorated with lots of little flowers, ribbon and buttons.
I stapled some gingham ribbon on the back of each piece of wood when I was finished.
It’s a fun, easy project, and a great way to display your favorite paper patterns.

Sweet Audrey

I stitched this one-of-a-kind Audrey Hepburn piece because I thought it would be fun to work with a gray scale pattern.  She is created using over two dozen shades of gray, black and white.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s was such an iconic movie and Hepburn is still the person by which we measure elegance and grace.
I have this finished cross-stitch available on eBay until Sunday here:
I have started the bid at $.99 so that she will be available to anyone who wants it. 
I’m also including FREE shipping world-wide.
Don’t miss out on this one. 
Only ONE available!

Thanks so much!
