Free Peacock Cross Stitch Pattern

I've been doing cross stitch for about fifteen years now (yikes). I left it to the wayside for a few years in the middle there (mostly during college) and then picked it up again when I became a stay at home mom. For the last six years I have ventured into sewing, wool applique, rug hooking, punchneedle . . . whatever drew my fancy. Of course cross stitch is my first and one true love. It seems only fitting then that my first post would be a free cross stitch pattern. I call it Wintyr Peacock but a different color scheme can certainly change the theme. Here's a picture of what I stitched using the pattern. Maybe I'll make it into a pincushion backed with the fabric shown. I haven't decided. I stitched it on 40 count with some scrap linen sitting in a basket in my bedroom so it came out pretty small. I do like those tiny little designs though; so easy to stitch and such instant gratification. If you would like the pattern just click on the Free Pattern link in the sidebar and print in out. Let me know how it turns out, I'd love to see others' work.

Hi Jennie! Welcome - I love your peacock pattern - I'm trying so so so hard to stay focused on my Christmas ornament stitching, but I really want to do this one...right...now. It's really lovely!

Oh and as a suggestion - why don't you put your url on the graph - that way, for those of us who download it but don't work it right away, we'll be able to remember who created it. :)
