It's Freebie Time!

 So many of you folks have asked about making my header up there into a pattern for cross stitch,
that I decided & would ~
I wanted to gift you all with it as a freebie 
...for the kindness that you all show Peter & I ~

here is
"Summer's End"
©Notforgotten Farm 2015 ~ Lori Brechin

you can click on the photos to make them bigger, 
~ then save them to your computer and print them out.

The color photo of the blocks below looked better here
with a darker background, so that's what is shown...
but the entire background is NOT stitched/filled in!

 I would LOVE to see your finishes of this design ~
think about unique finishes ~ or just simply framed or stuffed.
whichever finish you choose, please let me see them :)

 ~ you have my permission make a small number of finished items from this design for profit, 
but no mass-stitching or photocopying/selling the actual graph/chart please!!!
*and thank you kindly for giving me credit for design too*

Have fun & Happy Stitching!

~ Blessings from the Farm ~
