Welcome Stitchers and Friends! This blog is about my wee cottage industry: Fearn Abbey Needleworks; and about my own personal stitching adventures. Have a wee look around and see if we can be stitching friends. Thank you for stopping by!

I Couldn't Wait for Friday...So Here's Your Free Chart!

Everyone seems to be getting into a "fall" frame of mind.  I'm sure lots of you are much farther along in your fall decorating than I am!  Well, to add a little Scottish touch to your Fall decorating, here is my latest free chart:
 A sheep, of course!  He is done in ecru cotton thread, with a dark black-brown for his legs and face.  And, he has big green sheepy eyes.  A black crow sits atop his back.  The funny thing is...we often see crows and jackdaws sitting on top of the sheep around here.  It makes me laugh every time I see it!
 This little sheep is accompanied by two apple trees, just ready for picking, and two big pumpkins.  All the cross stitching is done in 3 strands, and the backstitching is done in 2 strands.  I did the model on pale blue marble Aida.  I like the effect!
To get your free chart, CLICK HERE and you will be taken to a PDF download.  Happy stitching, and as always, send me a photo when you are done!

Hi Stacey and thank you :)
I'm a sheep lover myself, but I don't own any yet :0} I wonder what makes crows sit on their backs??
Do they 'clean' them? :D

Thanks for your blog, designs, photos and links...
