Free Friday: Join Our Stitch-Along!

Hi there, everyone!  Are you having a good autumn so far?  I feel like it's zipping by so quickly, like I hardly have time to appreciate its magnificent beauty before it's gone.  I love autumn!  It's definitely my favorite season of all.

That's not to say that I don't love winter, which I do!  The majestic beauty of a snowy landscape is a sight to behold, and of course who doesn't love the Christmas season?  Time spent with family, baking cookies, wrapping presents, drinking hot cocoa, and of course building snowmen!

I thought we should do something to help us get into the wintry Christmas season, and since I'm a plastic canvas designer, what else would I think of but to make a plastic canvas design!  And not just a design, but a stitch-along design!

So my plan in so release a section of the pattern every week, lasting for four weeks, so that we can stitch this lovely pattern together.  Once the stitch-along is over, I'll post the pattern in its entirety in case you missed the event!
