Embroiderbee’s Irish Coffee 2012 ~ Freebie

I adore the smell and taste of coffee!  This pattern celebrates Irish Coffee and St. Patrick’s Day with its green and brown colors and subtle four-leaf clovers.   There are several special stitches, and it measures 6  1/4″  X  15  1/2″ on 16 ct fabric.   Irish Coffee is under my copyright and released for your personal, non-commercial use only.


     Thank you to all the lovely stitchers who write to me and comment on my patterns.  I love the thought that together we can create heirlooms!  I try to respond to comments  personally, but time and life sometimes interfere.  Just know that I truly appreciate your feedback … it keeps me excited about designing! 

  Happy Stitching!

Problem with File sharing


Well, I’m not sure what happened today, but the widget is working again … and I did NOTHING to it because I had absolutely no time to.   Rather creepy, but at least it’s working.  It makes absolutely no sense to me, but because my designs are currently offered for free, I’m not as concerned as I would be if I were offering designs commercially.   Was it a glitch?  Did someone mess with my setting somehow?  The whole affair will be submitted to the great help people, so maybe I’ll get  an answer soon.


Hi Readers,

I “fixed” a problem  file in the SHARED FILES widget last night and just discovered that my file sharing widget is now showing up as being set to No Access!  I have no idea what’s going on, but I’m too tired to deal with it tonight and will deal with it tomorrow.  Apologies to anyone trying to access my shared files.


Freebie Sampler ~ True Blue: Forget Me Not


This is a sampler that I designed for myself in 2009.  It contains many of my favorite motifs, and is being released for your personal,  non-commercial use only.  You can easily personalize it with your initials and some of your own favorite motifs.  There are several special stitches included!
