  1. What a cute design, and the perfect size to be able to finish for this Christmas! Thank you for this gift.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful pattern. Can't wait to stitch one up!

  3. What a pretty chart. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  4. Oh so sweet Thank-you for sharing your talents.
    Merry Christmas.

  5. Thanks Jennifer. I have a sister and bil that live in a log cabin and I think this will be perfect for them--next year!

  6. Cute chart, thanks for sharing. I LOVE your homestead picture, it's beautiful !

  7. Thanks Jennifer - that's lovely!

  8. Adorable!

    I am SO stressed by the tree right now! Some lights went out so I had to re-arrange them on the tree. I tried buying more, but they don't seem to sell frosted warm white this year! :/ (My tree is frosted warm white and 1 strand of pearl gold for accent on the lights.)

    Makes me remember when I was growing up and my child hood friend's dad used to say that he wished the tree would just descend from the attic all decorated--sort of like a trapdoor just opens up right in the ceiling and it lowers itself into place, lol!

  9. Thanks so much for the darling chart. And Thanks so very much for sharing your talent with us.
    Merry Christmas.

  10. Thank you again Jennifer! I can't wait to start stitching one of your freebies (this weekend I plan to!)

  11. How do I access the chart? I can't seem to find it.....
