A Special Gift From a Friend.... And I Need Help From My Stitching Friends...

 

 
 I have received a wonderful surprise from my dear stitching friend, Andrea over the past weekend. It is always such a treat to receive a giftie from Andrea. Her finishing puts mine to shame, I truly must say. I had actually had an ornament all set to go to surprise her as well.... and it is officially on its way as of yesterday. Andrea has posted that this design is by Soed Idee (a free chart, link available in Andrea's blog) and is called Christmas Wreath. Thank you again, dear Andrea.

I really, really am hoping to get some help from one of my blog readers/stitching friends on this one. I purchased the JCS 2012 Halloween Collectors Issue because the above photo on the cover grabbed me. The ornament, however, is only pictured on the cover, there is not a chart for it in the issue. It is very clearly by Plum Street Samplers. I learned from Googling that it was at one time posted for free on the JCS website. Of course, I missed that. I asked around in a FB group, and it was suggested I email Paulette. I did, but she did not reply. Can anyone help me? Does anyone have this stored in their computer and would be willing to share? I have asked Paulette if it is even a freebie that can be shared any longer. As I said, no reply. I am pretty saddened that I bought the magazine for this and cannot even access the chart. Any real would surely be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

It is bitingly cold in New England now... with a warm up (slight) due tomorrow, bringing with it very heavy rain.  Wish me luck. We will be going to MIL's to take her to lunch in that horriffic weather tomorrow.  Something about it is bugging me....  does not feel like a good idea.  Oh well.  Will have to wait and see.

Not in the magazine? I am going to have to check my copy of this edition cause I'm positive I saw it in there. If it's not, I'll put my name down as someone who wants this chart too! :O

Hi Carol,

The chart was accidently omitted from the publication and Just Cross Stitch made it available via their site. Here is a link to the .pdf for the chart;

Happy Holidays,

Lovely gift from Andrea!

I'm glad you posted this... I had a post about it when I received the magazine, but the link is no longer available... I too am printing it & putting it in my copy of the magazine!

Glad Joanne had the correct link for you. The one I had didn't work anymore.
