A Lovely Sunflower

This beautiful sunflower pattern is free from the Beau2Stitch blog [here].

The pattern uses whole stitches and half stitches (or tent stitches) to create texture in the background, but no worries there’s nothing fancy or difficult included in there.

Enjoy & Happy Stitching!

Pretty Tulips!

I love tulips, so simple and so pretty. I’m planning a special section of the yard just for tulip planting next year.

This is a free pattern from DMC. It’s sort of a long narrow pattern (stitch count is 44w X 216h) so it would make a wonderful bookmark or a small bellpull.

Beautiful pops of vibrant color and flower details 🙂

Beautiful Poppies in a Vase

It’s funny how amazing things pop up when you didn’t even know you were looking for them. I was poking around looking for something else entirely while having sewing machine troubles, and these stunning poppies came up in the search results. And then I saw the pattern was free! It’s printing as I type.

Manuela’s Sunflower from Chatelaine

When you hear someone mention Chatelaine Designs, you probably think of intricate mandalas and lots of detail work being done, maybe even the amazing mystery patterns. But if you click around the pages you’ll find a nice collection of little freebie designs as well, and this one is my favorite.

I love sunflowers. They’re the one thing I can grow in my garden every year with fail and they always look beautiful.

Happy Stitching
