Magic Wishes

This beautiful holiday themed cross stitch pattern is available free from Cross Stitching Art. To receive the PDF you do have to add it to your shopping cart and they will manually send you the pattern via email.

During the checkout process you are offered to create an account (which is useful if you like the patterns on the site and would like to order more later) and also to sign up for the newsletter (also useful), but those actions are optional and up to you. It can take a day or so to receive your pattern, but they seem to be pretty quick about filling orders.

Enjoy and Happy Stitching!

Merry Holiday

It’s never to early to get a head start on stitching the holidays this year. This simple and fun freebie comes from Connie Gee Designs.

The design is versatile enough that you could swap out the color scheme to just about anything and create a piece for any holiday, or to match your decor, to use up your leftover floss stash, or just to pick your favorite colors instead.

Enjoy and happy stitching!
