Free Mini Sampler Pattern Tutorial

This month's free pattern from The Sewing Cottage Magazine is a Mini Sampber~

Which fits perfectly into the Hoop Bag {in issue 4}


The mini sampler is just that. small–  with the full alphabet, some flowers, and a few chickens…. there is a little bit for everyone.  Leave it in the hoop to hang it, or frame it for a present.  If you have a new stitcher  just beginning to learn to stitch– this is the ticket!  Plus, in the magazine you get the pattern for the hoop bag…perfect for toting it around.

Have a happy and fun New Years!!! We are doing a traditional get together with the honey's family. But, seriously i think i might drop him and the kids off, pick up a few girls and go out to dinner and something else.  I am tired of watching the boys try to outdo each other in gaming, fooseball, and pingpong. It's like a man-year-party…. 

What are your plans?
