Exchange for Michele....

Twisted Threads"Harvest Trio"
32 ct. coffee-dyed linen w/mystery fibers
(***edited....oops...I had the wrong designer!)
Michele let me know she received her package for the Stitching Friends Through Seasons arrived and this is one of my favorites.  I loved the fabric and thought it was perfect with the design.  I really liked it so much I decided I would stitch another one for myself!!!

I just love this design so don't be surprised if you see it stitched many more times.

Here is another freebie I finally stitched and love this design.  I just love primitivebettys designs and hope to focus on some Christmas stitching now...she has some wonderful designs.
