~*Because I'm THANKFUL for YOU*~

Hello My Dear Friends! The title of this post ~ and the freebie ~ say it all...


©primitivebettys 2009

77 by 60 stitches


This lil' freebie was designed without color changes because I want to see how YOU work it up. Will you keep a single floss color? Use a variegated, wonderfully dyed designer floss? Make the tail feathers an Autumn 'rainbow'? Stitch on linen, Aida, or prairie cloth? Ohhhhh... I'm seeing lots of warm, wonderful works in my mind!

I left the top left of the design bare... will you add a year? your initials? your family name? It will be so interesting to see!

Happy stitching!

As always... please give credit for this design to me ~ Betty Dekat... primitivebettys. Do NOT sell the pattern ~ but finished works may be sold on a limited basis ~ no MASS production please.

Please remember to email me a photo of your finish so I can share it here on my blog & post it on my picturetrail. :)

Warm Autumn smiles to you...

Betty

  2. I'm grabbing a copy--thanks! BTW, I'm a "new fan" but your "My favorite Kitten" and some of your Hallowe'en designs are SO on my wishlist!

    I recently made a penny rug, and now I need some primitive stitchies to accompany it! It's gonna look SO good!
