Alphabets and Sunflowers ~ April Freebie & a note

Thank you all for your lovely comments!  You give this designer even more motivation!  Note: I’ve started a new SHARED FILES widget, as the first one is full and it’s getting a it harder to easily find the patterns you want.  So, as of today patterns created before April 2013 will be stored in the first Shared Files widget.  Patterns created for release in April 2013 and after, will be stored in the second, Shared Files II widget.  All patterns are under my copyright and released for your personal, non-commercial use only.  The original design (pictured here) was created with Sullivan’s Floss.

The DMC  version is also in the Shared Files II widget! 

Happy Stitching!

  1. Hi,
    Here is the link try it again, I may have given it to you wrong the first time…thanks for stopping by.

    • Hi Tracy,
      Thanks for re-posting your blog address for me. I finally got there! You’re off to a great start with your blog. Keep blogging and stitching. Do me a big favor and post my attribution and blog address with your picture of Alphabets. Then anyone who sees your post can find my patterns also! Thank you!
      Happy Stitching!

  2. How to use

    I’m new and don’t know how to download Shared Files widget.

    Thank you for the answer.

    • Hi Grace!

      My charts are all in the Shared Files widget on the right (or left hand) side of the main blog page. Its placement really depends upon which WordPress Blog Theme I’m using. Patterns are listed in chronological order, and the most current design shown on the blog will be at the top of the list in that Shared Files widget. To save time and paper I’ve started (March 2011) printing my charts with colored symbols in one PDF, instead of one PDF for symbols and one for color. You can usually get a good idea of what the overall chart looks like by either, (1) double clicking on the image of it on the blog itself, and printing that out (you might have to set your printing parameters to 80% or less till the image fits on one page) OR, (2) just go with the image from the PDF in the Shared Files widget. For example, the chart for When you were a Tadpole has eight pages, including the floss colors used and the stitches used. Since you can change the viewing size on a PDF, you can easily view it at whatever size is easiest for you to see.

      Happy Stitching!


      • Thank you for the reply, Remi.

        I was using mobile phones when first time browsing your blog, then the next day I opened it from my computer.
        So, now we know that only using computer will be able to see the right hand link you put on your blog.
        Thanks again.

        Happy designing and stitching!

  3. I love this alphabet design! I think I’ll do it for my hubby who used to keep bees when he was younger! Thanks so much, Remy!

  4. Thanks Gals!

    Laurie, I think you may have tried to download during the time this morning when I was uploading, deleting and then re-uploading the pattern to get it installed properly. So sorry!! I hope you’ve tried since then and been able to download it. Let me know if you still have problems.
    Tracy, I just uploaded the DMC version for you!
    SpringRobin, you, and all the stitchers are most welcome!

    I absolutely love designing, and you stitchers are like the frosting on the cake!
