Autumn Blackwork Cat - Free Cross Stitch Pattern

I was looking for something on my computer and came across a few of my free cross stitch patterns.  This one was always a favorite of mine so I thought I would offer again here.  I'm sure there a few cross stitchers out there would enjoy it! 

Just right click on it and save it to your hard drive.  It's a JPEG so print it using any graphic software.

This would be gorgeous with crazy quilting worked around the outside of it!  It would make a lovely fall pillow!

And just as a reminder, please don't post the pattern anywhere else on the internet.  I do own the copyright on it!

Happy Stitching!

Blog Give Away

I'm cleaning out a few things here but some of my things are pretty nice and I don't want to just give them to Good Will.  I'd rather give them away here to someone who would really enjoy having them.

Today's give away is for a little collection of decorative shoes:

The 3 shoes on the left are glass or ceramic.  I bought them years ago at flea markets.  The pink one to the right is handmade.

Also included is a really pretty (and rather expensive) glass Christmas Plum Pudding tree ornament.

The first person to leave a comment here and send me an email can have them.  I will pay for postage.  USA only please.

I have more things, which I'll post as I have time but for now, these little things are really pretty.

UPDATE:  These are spoken for.  I'll have another give away soon!

Our Fallen Officer

I'd like to send my prayers and thoughts to the family and friends of our fallen police officer, Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, a 32-year veteran of the force who died yesterday in the line of duty in Fox Lake, Illinois.  We live 20 minutes from Fox Lake and the community heartbreak is strongly felt in our area today.
