2017 Christmas Freebie






2017 Christmas freebie - Mistletoe Kisses. I am sorry there's no stitched model. As it was so late in the month I could not expect the lovely Carol S to drop everything to stitch this. Maybe you would like to stitch this and I will add your picture here? 

I suggest using blue fabric; the border and writing to be stitched in white with green mistletoe leaves and white berries. White beads would look lovely here. 

*Edited* Picture posted shows two versions - I stitched two over two and my grand-daughter Meg stitched it one over one. Thanks Meg for showing how different this can look when stitched over one!

If you re-post this please do so before you enlarge the chart so it links back as too many 'free charts' are just linking to the charts. Designers have these free charts to encourage people to visit their site! Thank you.

Wood spools for Blue Band Sampler




These are custom made spools for both the Blue Band Sampler and Red Band Sampler which are now in stock. As you can see they come in light and dark colours at US$20 each plus tracked shipping which to the US is $16 for 1 or 2 spools.

If you are interested in purchasing these please email me at istitch37@gmail.com with your Paypal address and your home address if not in the US so I can work out shipping costs and thereafter send you an invoice. 

*Edited* All dark spools are now sold. A few light spools are still available
