First of all, it was a special birthday for my daughter, so I stitched her one of the freebie Hardanger designs from Nordic Needle, called Hardanger with Crystals #4 (just scroll down to find it). I found her favourite colour in my collection of threads and used beads instead of crystals. I also decided to put a different filling stitch in the middle of of Kloster blocks. (I do like to changing things sometimes.) After looking through my stash I finally found a card to put it in.

And finally here is the baby card I stitched for my hairdresser. Its a Sam Hawkins design. I just used up some of my odd threads, and I'm pleased how it turned out. As you can see, she had a little girl.
There are some great freebies to be found on the webb. Here are a few that I have found.
Brookes Books Publishing has started a new series of Advent Animals, and the charts can be found here (just scroll down the page). Please note that I have not stitched these designs yet.
