Thanks again to all of you came along for our blog hop- it was tons of fun!
The winners of my giveaway were Kathleen and Cindy- Thanks for playing, ladies! Your goodies are on their way to your doors....
Since this is the season of giving, I do have a few Free things for you. All of the the patterns below are available on my Free Pattern Page on my website. You can use them for stitcheries, applique, note cards, Christmas cards.... In fact, I even have a free idea sheet loaded with ideas to get you going.
