February freebie finishes

First of all thank-you to everyone who has entered my giveaway and has added themselves as a follower to my blog. I have had a peek at a few new blogs already and look forward to discovering some more.
I have had great fun this week working on my freebie charts. The first one I completed was Be Mine by The Sampler Girl. I stitched this on aida band with punchberry and hyacinth gast threads. http://www.thesamplergirl.com/articles.php


The next one was Plant Kindness Reap Friendship by Sharon Manspeaker. I stitched this using Aquarelle cotton threads and instead of stitching the flower I used a button. Sharon has lots of wonderful freebies on her blog at http://www.xstitchhappy.com/search/label/cross%20stitch%20freebies

A few more stitches and I will have also finished Valentine by Primitivebettys. I seem to be kinda stuck on a heart theme just now but even though this is the month of love I would like to find some other small cute freebies. If you have any to share please leave me a link, thanks.

My hubby Ian has gone out with his camera club today, Craig has gone to Glasgow and H is working so it is a real treat for me to get some peace and quiet. I love getting the house to myself to just sit and stitch and chill out. I have been re-watching the tv series 24. This is one of my all time favourite shows. Sadly I don;t have sky tv so I am not able to watch the new series that is showing at present. I will be counting the days and hours until it is released on dvd. So, I am off to settle down with my stitching to watch series 3. Hope everyone is having a good week-end. Hugs!

Beautiful finishes and i love the button flower you have attached instead of stitching the flower.

Not sure if you are aware of this site or not, but about.com has quite a few free patterns. Here's a link:

Pretty finishes. Isn't it nice when the house is quiet (and empty) and you can get some peaceful stitching time in? Love it
