Autumn is Here from The Snowflower Diaries

This fun little bird on a branch is available as a free pattern download at The Snowflower Diaries, titled Autumn is Here.

Love the fun fall colors. The Snowflower Diaries also has an Etsy shop to check out.

The recommended threads noted were Nina’s Threads and I had never heard of those before, so I went looking for them. I love finding new designers and suppliers with pretty things 🙂

I’m off to get lost in the rabbit trail that is Etsy… every time I click on something pretty, it gives me more pretty suggestions.
