A free design from Whispered by the Wind. The chart is all for cross stitch, but I changed the design slightly and used white seed beads for the snowflake in the centre and used DMC for the stitching on red aida.

I then made it into a cushion.

Welcome Freebie

Welcome (freebie) from Sweetheart Tree
stitched on 28 ct Lugana (I think the colour is called Pewter)
using all recommended colours and treasures
I didn't get this freebie online, but received it when I ordered from an ebay seller.
I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a freebie or if the seller just included it as a freebie from her.

Blackwork Noel

My version of the Blackwork Noel freebie from Glory Bee
stitched on 28 ct White Evenweave
(chart found here)
Stitched by Christine Darrah
My Changes to the pattern:
I rotated the chart a quarter turn, and then stitched the letters over 1
so they would fit with the new arrangement of the ornament.
I also stitched the entire ornament in red, instead of the recommended red/green
and only used one strand of thread instead of the recommended two.

Sew To Be Seen Ornament

This is a freebie from Judy Dixon from Sew To Be Seen designs. I forget what it's called ;( But if I find the chart I will edit the post...I think it's called Snowflake or something.

Quaker Hedgehog

The Workbasket Freebie Hedgehog. You can find the chart for this little fella on the Workbasket website too!

I made him into a thimble pip...this picture is TERRIBLE, but you get the idea!

(for some reason - this blog wont let me post a title!)

Intermediate Whitework Ornament and Stretch

This is Teresa Wentzler's Intermediate Whitework Ornament. It's so obviously NOT whitework - but I think it looks good made up like this!

You can get the patterns from her website.

This litte gorgeous thing is Stretch, also designed by Teresa. He's a really lovely, colourful draggie - a great way to get yourself into stitching a larger TW design.
