FREE PATTERNS using Windham’s Williamsburg’s Annabelle

Hello Friends, it is no secret I am somewhat of a dishaholic (have been since I was in college), especially if they are done in blue and white.  But I will also take non-blue and white dishes anytime! :)

It absolutely thrilled me when Windham asked me to design something to support their Annabelle fabric line.  You will see quickly see why, and I came up with the following.

#1.  A View From The Window

#2.  Butterfly Garden

Design 4d_57 x 74.25

#3.  Tiles

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a lovely weekend.  Meanwhile, I got some blue skeins of Aurifloss, embroidery floss made by Aurifil!  SO…. no winter blues for me while I am playing with these floss!  [A review of the floss coming up next week — I need to finish up a stitched piece before I can do the review.]

Confession of a dishaholic (part 2)

If you let a dish-aholic start collecting a set of blue and white dishes,

Confession #1: She will have to have other blue and white dishes to go with those she started out, and sink her love deeper and deeper and yet even deeper in the blue and white pile of dishes there are out there…

Confession #2: Then, she will think she needs to start collections of  other dishes to balance out the blue/white monopoly in her cupboards…
