For Those Of Us Who Quilt and Embroider

 This one is for all of us who love to do all things in the fiber arts.  From quilting to cross-stitching!

  And this is one of those patterns where you could really make it your own by using any color scheme you'd like.  Or dress it up with some specialty threads!

Floral Sachet or Gift Bags

 I found a few more patterns!  Some of them are really blurry or very pale, because the magazine paper they were printed on was poor quality.  And even the photography was poor quality.  So I'll post those at the very very very end when I have nothing left at all!

Meanwhile, these are some nice floral sachet or gift bags.  Or decorations any way you want to use them!

Thankful Sampler for 2021

 And here is probably the last post for some time, unless I get time to start posting my own designs and/or have the time to re-scan missing parts of patterns that I lost when my computer crashed this March.

  In light of the pandemic this year of 2020, I thought it would be appropriate to end it with a sampler that mentions "and that today we are together," since for billions of people all over the world, being together has not been possible to do safely.

  Hopefully 2021 will see us putting an end to the pandemic for everyone worldwide.

Floral Design for a Blanket

 This is probably going to be the next to last post for at least a few months.  I've just about come to the end of all the patterns in my collection that I had scanned before I put them away safe into storage.  As the paper these are printed on was most often newspaper grade or just a bit better than that and it becomes so brittle that it falls apart just trying to turn pages.

  My computer crashes early this year and although I thought I had backed up all of my files, the means by which I backed up created multiple copies of almost everything.  I take a lot of photos!  And I scan a lot.  Which meant I had to sort through over 40,000 files to find and delete duplicates after the crash.

  And in that process I appear to have accidently deleted some of the scans of the patterns.  For example, some of those really cool detailed Christmas Stockings!  So although I'd love to go through the originals and search for the missing ones, there just isn't going to be much time to do that this coming year.  

  This is a beautiful floral pattern could be used for so many things!
