~ Freebie Time ~

Hello my stitching friends & folk ~
happy Thursday afternoon to you all! 
today's weather seems more Autumnal, more fall-ish

I'm working on a new Thanksgiving cross stitch design, 
and I though I would gift you all with a coordinating freebie...
so here is:

Big Red Acorn

click on the chart and the symbol legend below that {separately}, save them to your computer
and then print them out any size you'd like.

 The model {{above}} that I'm stitching for the new design is called 
~ Talking Turkey ~
and the colors of DMC threads I'm using to stitch this are the very same that are in this freebie...
I'm stitching Talking Turkey onto 32ct Cedar Plank linen from Lakeside Linens 

I love using my mom's old maple-wood 'QUEEN' hoop with coin-screw
when I stitch

 Hope you enjoy the Freebie!
I will be adding it to my 'FREEBIES" page 
under 'my link's over there on the upper tight column of this blog for future use.

*Friendly Reminder*
I love to offer my friends and customers free stitch for themselves, or others ~
and as the designer, I also allow you to sell a limited number of finished projects from this design.
any mechanical copying/printing/mass producing and/or selling of this freebie 
or any of my free charts/graphs/designs
 is strictly prohibited and protected by United States Copyright laws © 
~ I kindly ask that you give me credit for design 
if you will be sharing it and/or posting about it on social media.

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
