Free Sampler Pattern ~ Always Springtime

It is Always Springtime

Free Sampler Pattern which incorporates some of my favorite motifs.  The design is 71 stitches wide by 180 stitches long, and incorporates a quote and some special stitches too.  The colors are simple ~ 4 blues, 4 greens, 4 pinks and a yellow, so personalizing it would be easy.   Replace the quote with a favorite one of your own, insert a pretty alphabet,  or leave the whole area out and shorten the sampler.  I love changing things to suit myself, and this sampler invites you to do the same.

Happy Stitching!
