I Heart Snowflakes ~ The Gentle Art II

Here is a slightly different take on my design, I Heart Snowflakes, called I Heart Snowflakes~ Gentle Arts Threads II.  It is also a freebie for your stitching pleasure only, and under my copyright.   I love The Gentle Art colors!  Remember to check the SHARED FILES widget on the right hand side of the blog for the pattern PDF.  If you do not see the SHARED FILES widget on the page you landed on, (if you landed here via a link) scroll to the very top of that page and click on Embroiderbee’s Primary Hive, which will bring you to my homepage where you will be able to see the SHARED FILES widget on the right hand side.  Check for the pattern you want by its name.

Happy Stitching!

Hi fellow Stitchers!

Here’s a pretty, quaker style freebie.    I Heart Snowflakes is 5″ X 11 1/2″   on 14 ct linen.  It’s a nice size to stitch in-hand and take with you.  The design is under my copyright and released for your personal, non-commercial use only.

My Husband’s Two Favorite Designs Coordinated in GA Sampler Threads

My DH has always liked my Green Quaker design (see the original ~ April 2010), so when I did this special I Love You! sampler for him in his preferred Gentle Art’s Sampler Thread colors, I revised the Green Quaker slightly and then matched its colors to those of I Love You!.  The two related designs now make great companion pieces.

These patterns are free for your personal, non-commercial use only.

Happy Stitching!


I Love You!

January 2011 Quaker ~ Free Personal Use Chart

January 2011 Quaker

I love seeing where my visitors are from.  It amazes me to see all your countries, and know that you’ve visited my blog in your journeys across the web.  It keeps me sending out patterns, like a signals sent into deepest space, to see if I can elicit communication.  I watch my downloaded pattern statistics on and begin to understand what draws you in.  I do lots of random searches on Bing (I hardly ever use Google anymore) just to see what’s out there.  The immense creativity on the web fascinates me.  Today I had a visitor from Ireland, and it gladdened my heart because a few posts back, I was questioning why I see so few visitors from Ireland.

Anyway, I’m delighted that you visit, wherever you’re from!  Do write and say hello, share your blog address, or mention what you’d like to see in upcoming designs.  If I need to,  I’ll just pop your words into the Bing translator.

This free pattern, January 2011 Quaker  is under copyright, and for your personal use only.

Happy Stitching!





Thanks for your replies!  I read each and every one, and I love Quakers too!  I’ve been working on several new Quaker designs which should be out this spring.  Your Poll responses also show Quakers to be big favorites, which is great for me because I love designing them.


Here’s one stitcher’s interpretation of this design!  It’s quite pretty, don’t you think? I love the fringe. It’s from the blog, Love So Swing
