Freebies and Cards

these are some oldies...
at least 9-10 years
back when I was doing punchneedle

planned on punching these designs
then putting them on spools
adding stuffed bird and whatnot

today I would hook them
in a heart on a background
then hook the extra birds or hearts around the edge
hope that makes sense...

am going to hook the sheep for mom for Christmas
will share when I get going


can't believe our primitive rug hooking group 
on ebay was so long ago...
where I met so many of my dear online friends

2007 anniversary design
I'd change the cat up a bit now
less belly and more leg

please enjoy these freebies for personal use
may also be used for profit in small number of finished items
no selling the pattern in any way

please do not share on Pinterest or other online sites
give credit to me as the designer
and all the other blah blah blah


as you know if you're a blog reader
my Mom lives in a nursing facility
she has dementia and cannot walk due to a knee fracture
almost 3 years ago

she loves getting mail
especially cards 

if you would be so kind to send her a Christmas card
or later a 93rd birthday card
(January 3rd)
I would be most delighted!

if you're a hooker
write hooker on the back of your envelope

if you're not a hooker
write not a hooker on the back of yours

I have some bags of wool worms
plus other little gifts to send out 
randomly to folks that send her cards...

Your patterns are very sweet even if one doesn't punch them. I especially like the cat in the heart.
I will put a card in the mail for your dear mom.

Fun patterns and things we can do easily to have some done for the holidays.
I know your mom would love to get cards and brighten her day when the mail comes in.

Your mom will LOVE getting all her cards! Can't believe how long it's been since I first 'met' you online!
