I have spoken of this lady before namely Diana Vingert, who sells on Etsy but also has her own shop. For those of you interested in having a go at a new hobby Diana has produced some freebie patterns which are available here.
She has her own shop here as well:
Also check out her main patterns and kits via her Etsy store which is here:
I have to go and collect some threads soon from Hobbycraqft and have bought in the threads needed for the third free pdf pattern which will be my next project after my cross stitch/embroidered lap quilt which is currently being worked. I have some vintage linen I am going to work this new pattern on.
Just thought I would share for those of you who want to have a go. Even if you only download the pdf patterns you will have them for when you do want to play.
Catch you soon.
