A giveaway where everybody wins!!

How about a free One Day In May pattern?
Darlene, of Bee Sew Whimsical and Snickerdoodle Dreams, recently invited me to contribute a pattern as the Snickerdoodle Dreams, "Guest Honeypot Designer" for June. There is a wonderful Snickerdoodle Community to become a part of ~ a warm home for creative social networking. It's very simple to join and it's free!! As an added bonus, each month, members find a new stitchery design or other small creative project to download, create and enjoy…
Well, how could I resist. Creative sharing is the very best part of this wonderful job I have.
Would you like to see what I came up with for their June project?
A Wreath For All Seasons ~ Framed Block - One Day In May, Creations by Melissa Grant
"A Wreath For All Seasons ~ framed block" suits an 8"-10" square frame. Combining a little stitchery, gathered borders and 3 sweet, dimensional flowers, this little project is the perfect size to create as a gift or to complete over a long weekend.
A Wreath For All Seasons ~ Framed Block 2- One Day In May, Creations by Melissa Grant
I have always loved quilts and embroidery with simple tones and colourways. In these early Winter days, I couldn't help but be drawn to these warm reds.
Adding texture and including a dimensional aspect to my projects, is something I always enjoy. There's just a hint of dimension here with these little, felted flowers.

The centre panel of "A Wreath For All Seasons" is the feature block of a new, soon to be released, One Day In May pattern. I'm looking forward to using this little stitchery design for the front of a very practical project… wonder if you can guess what it will be.

    How do you like working with wool? Your project looks good to me

  2. I love the felted wool Lesley! Sometimes I find I need to tidy up a few little frayed bits once the project is finished, but thats the only issue I’ve had… and I wouldnt really call it an issue. : ) The variegation and the colours are just gorgeous too. Ive also used them recently for a little project, designed for an upcoming issue for homespun. Lots of fun ~ Melissa

  5. It’s so elegant in a simple, soft way. Leave it to you to come up with something so pretty and just a little bit different!! I’ll have to check out Snickerdoodle Dreams. Sounds like fun.

    Hi Melissa. I’ve commented before on how much I love your creations so I was so excited to see that there was an additional posting. I’m not sure the whole Snickerdoodle thing is going to work well for me. By any chance will you be offering the download on your site? Thanks!

  7. I think it’s great to share patterns and how lucky we are coz it’s such a lovely pattern! Thanks Melissa

  8. Youre very welcome Sherryl… I hope you enjoy stitching it. : )

  9. Melissa, what a wonderful thing to do and such a sweet pattern. Rec’d my parcel from you today with the added felted wool (THANKS!)and it will be my first time working with it!
