Last night I found several websites that offer free counted cross stitch patterns. This blog will show several beautifully made things with links to the free patterns.

I found several nice mini samplers at Blue Ribbons Designs.

The Drawn Thread has a nice, classy look.

Glory Bee has some cutie pie designs.

This website has a few items I liked that were free and way too many that would like to buy.

And who doesn't love this cute snowman from Plum Pludding Needleart.

This ornament from Shepherd's Bush looks like it would be quick to make. I found it here.

Primitive Betty's has a nice, primitive style. I need to pick up some linen scraps on the road trip in March to work up a couple of these.

And this is the blog that inspires my stitching. She does beautiful things, and her finishing ideas are wonderful.

Hope this inspires you. Happy Friday!

PS - My husband just asked me what I was printing off. I'm busy printing charts and graphs to stitch! I don't have time to go to work; I'm quitting my job (just kidding, LAC).

Wow, you sure have been busy! I just love that there are so many free things on the web!

I checked out the website that you sent me for the fabric. I wasn't too pleased with the Amy Butler fabric. Just wasn't what I was looking for. So I searched out all of the pink fabric. There were a couple that I liked. I have to do some thinking though.

I also wanted to tell you that I really liked the heart graphic that you used at the beginning of your post. Dad should make some of those.

Mary, thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words. Thanks also for your e-mail of last week. I have yet to find a way to incorporate 'joyfully' in my blog. All I can think of right now is 'snotfully' :o)
Those are some lovely links you gave us!

Thanks for visiting me at I'm returning the favor here and just wanted you to know that I love this post about stitchery. I've made the little "bee keeper" from Drawn Threads and given it as gifts to friends. Thanks for all the new sites to visit!
