~ A Freebie for You! ~


 Hello Friends & Folk!
Happy Monday to us all ~
guess what? it's raining! AGAIN!
wow, have never seen this much rain in one month ~
good for the soil, plenty of nitrogen for our plants ~
 but the mold spores grow too and boy do they play with my allergies
 ~ yuck.


Since I am 'cleaning out' my 
"somewhat older/never completed/need to be finished and stitched"
 designs on my computer, I found this sweet honey bee that I charted a couple of moons ago...
and though ~ 
Hmmm....my friends might want to stitch this to add to their growing
bee-themed finishes that I see them displaying?
so, for your amusement and the fact that I love to share, here is

🐝 ~ Bee a Kind Soul ~ 🐝
 



I would LOVE to see your finishes of this design...
I originally charted it to be worked on 36ct linen with DMC threads ~
{symbols legend shows DMC}
but
make it yours! ...change the colors, 
how about stitching it really small, one over one on 30 or 28ct linen?
don't like to stitch on linen? then use that Aida cloth ~
there is NOTHING WRONG with cross stitching on AIDA cloth!
{{You have my permission to do so!}}
~ AND there are wonderful folks who offer hand dyed AIDA cloth now too!
You can Google 'hand dyed AIDA cloth' and it will show you many shops who offer it ~

I will also post this FREEBIE on my "Freebies" page
for you for future reference ~ that link is over there on my right sidebar ---->
α€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œα€œ
 Well, I am off to process weekend orders, then stitch to my heart's content...
...rainy days are made for stitching
aren't they?


Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
