    Thanks for this free pattern Joan! Also, a huge thank you for the “Spring Garden Fairy” in CROSS-STITCH & NEEDLEWORK (Mar.14)! I love her, supplies should be in my mailbox tomorrow from our Welcome Stitchery store here in Illinois. AND, the “Rainbow Fairy” in the current issue of “the World of Cross Stitch.” Wow! (My mother paints Van Gogh and other greats, her advise to me recently was that I should cover my walls with my cross stitch, not to store it. We all know Mother knows BEST, so, I will be doing just that!) XX for all the happiness you give from a needle and a thread. Rosemarie
    P.S. Are you planning any designs including the ‘new’ DMC?

      Listen to your mother Rosemarie 🙂 I have just finished something using some of the new DMC colors. Can’t say much more about it though 😉

      Oh yes, of course Elizabeth. The restrictions are on people that would stitch and sell the design. I think this will be a lovely gift for you friend!
