3 free patterns and a couple of finishes.

Happy Wednesday afternoon!  It is a beautiful day here in northern Delaware. It is actually sunny.  ;-) 45 degrees but sunny.
Several things have occurred in the last few weeks to give me a lot of extra stitching time plus I have had a few projects that were close to being finished. I have 3 projects finished! !! Yeah for me.
The first thing I have finished is my November Cottage. Once I finished that I was on a roll and pulled out  Autumn Band Sampler by Little House Needleworks. I changed the colors of the words and sunflowers to GAST Harvest Moon and the center of the sunflowers I changed to DMC 3031.
After that I pulled out my Truly Thankful piece by Heartstring Samplery. I ran into a mistake but not until the very end so instead of frogging the entire right side, I decided to add an acorn down on the bottom right corner. I like how it turned out. I am not sure how I will finish it yet, so I will tuck it in the closet until I decide.
The final finish is an ornament that I started last Christmas day. Victoria Sampler's Button up Birdie English Robin. I stitched it on a scrap of mystery 32ct.fabric with all of the called for threads.
I am now working on December cottage and I have made pretty good progress and then earlier I noticed that I must have spilled a drop of my smoothie on it this morning.  :-(  I washed it but there is still a faint spot. I have decided to keep stitching as most of it will be covered by the frame.

I am trying to keep my stash to a minimum so I am going to start going through it and selling and giving away ones that I have finished.So if you are interested in the pattern for Autumn Band Sampler or Truly Thankful. I also have a little Prairie Schooler Freebie to give away. (I am saving the November Cottage pattern to sell the whole set.)Please leave a comment letting me know which one you would like or all of them and I will draw the winners here in a week or so. Please feel free to comment even if you haven't already done so. ;-)
Happy stitching!
(Sorry the photos are crappy! Next time I will use my regular camera, rather than my phone. )
