A Little Free Friday Fun

Happy Friday, Stitchers!

I thought I'd surprise you with a fun new freebie design
 you can use with bits and pieces from your stash. 
I call it LITTLE FLOWER BASKET #1
(and yeah, I'll be sharing others as I have time to whip up the graphs!).


   
 Anyway, this little cutie can be worked on 18 ct. canvas with #5 pearl cottons
and the design will be approximately 3.5" x 3.5".
If you want to stitch it on 24 ct. Congress Cloth with 3-4 stranded silks or cottons,
your design size will be approximately 2.5" x 2.5". 

I've graphed it with a minimum of threads, but feel free to play around with it --
stitch some variegated colors in the flowers or basket; add more beads
in all the flower centers; place a fancy charm or button on the center flower;
tie a small bow at the top of the basket; or work on colored canvas and omit all
 the ecru background stitches (super fast stitching!).

This would be a fast and easy hand-held project for those lazy summer days of 
sitting by the lake or beach, chatting with friends, or watching golf or a baseball game...

HAVE FUN
AND
ENJOY YOUR SUMMER DAYS!
