It's not often (or maybe never before) 
that I laugh out loud from a cross stitch design. 
BUT,  I did with this one! 

I have no idea who designed it, or even stitched it, 
a friend sent me the photo...
BUT, it DID make me giggle.

Giveaway for Gratitude! :)


I've been cleaning for Thanksgiving and feeling grateful. So happy to be alive, and with my family- some of which will be arriving soon, hense the mad scramble to dust and clean!

Anyway, while cleaning, I found 4 of my leaflet patterns that were a goof on the front page (lack of ink - so dim black-n-white printing without the usual color) BUT with the black-n-white graph and legend perfectly clear and intact on the back. These are wonky - but still very stitchable! (See below for photos)

So - I hate to simply throw them away. I can't sell them, as they are imperfect (aren't we all), but I thought I might give them away? Yep - so....

The first 4 people to respond to my post with a name will receive one of these weird misprinted patterns that are still very stitchable. Please just leave your name & email and I will contact you for address so privacy is intact. As far as email addresses - you can put a space between to avoid spam from others - like mine would be mae @ thestitcherhood .com.  Space before and after @ and before the .whatever

The 4 free patterns are:
#129 Teach Peace
#128 - Funshine
#127 - My Blue Heaven
#126 - Grandmas

While posting - leave your name, email address and which pattern you choose.

First come first serve.

             Patterns all fine - just minus color (or most of the color)

  Backs with patterns in perfect state. Ready to be stitched and enjoyed!


Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
Thanks and Blessed Be!
