Freebie Cross Stitch!

I am still practicing with my pattern maker and making cross stitch pieces, so I thought I would try a small one for fun.
This is a piece that I adapted from an antique fraktur and made it into a needle case size.
I still need to make it into one, but I added a photo, so you can see what the pattern looks like stitched.
Enjoy the pattern and please make it for yourselves or as gifts, not for profit.



I made the pattern into a graphic and it prints out nicely. I left it with blocks, since it is a simple pattern and you can use any colors that you like. I made mine on 18 count and it is the perfect size for a needle book. This week I started a new punch needle piece and I got to the end of the main design and punched a hole right through the cloth:( So, no new punches this week, but I am restarting it and as soon as my joints stop aching, I will get to work again.

Thanks for sharing....I haven't cross stitched in years and maybe should pull it out again...I did say maybe. So little time for all.

That's really nice! I'm ready to go make a needlebook with it right now. :)
