the day would come when I finally had some free time to devote to this passion of mine. While I was in "wait mode" I filled three notebooks with stitchery and craft pattern ideas and prototypes just waiting to be hatched(ha, that's the chicken mama in me talking now). They have been incubating for 14 years and the day has arrived to unveil the first batch. Here are a couple that I have listed on Etsy with more to follow. As soon as I can figure out how to put a free pattern on this blog I will do so for your stitching pleasure. You can check out my designs at www.thestitchincoop.etsy.com.
