Primitive Folk Art Designs and Finished Items

" Who you are is God's gift to you........ What you do, is your gift to God !"

Friday, March 27, 2009 is a Challenge for you...

Robby and I were yakking on the phone and we came up with an idea...I was being lazy, so I just copied/pasted what she wrote on her
....let's have a cross stitch challenge. Find the bird section. Jenny Rasmussen is the scroll down and you will see that there are a couple of bird designs that are real prim. If you have trouble finding them, email me at and I will send you the pattern.

The rules are:

Must use this peacock somewhere in your design.

Sign up here to join and link it to your blog.

Must have a finished piece done in 2 weeks.

This will be fun to see everyone's creativity. Oh and check out and there are heaps of things for free there....and blank charts to us

Oh this sounds like such fun - I love challenges but I have a huge challenge here just getting my orders out!
I'll have to pass on this one.
Hugs, Karen

I've put this link on my blog. I'm a better copier than originator, but I'd like to give this one a try.

I'm inspired. I love peacocks and anything to do with cross stitch and old samplers. I'll want to give this a try.
I have added a post to my blog and can't wait to see the results.
