Free Small Lace Sampler Pattern.... and a gift from Australia

I would like to share with you a picture of what my lovely friend Margaret in Australia sent me. I had said that I liked the Koala bookmark that she had made and had posted a pic of on her blog...... but I didn't expect to receive the two beautiful bookmarks that she sent me. I love the Koala, but aren't the Gum Tree Blossoms gorgeous. Australia must look wonderful when those trees are out in bloom.

I have been busy this last week trying out my upgraded pattern programme, and would like to share with you the little Small Lace Sampler that I have made.
I have yet to find out how to encapsulate a pattern in a PDF, but no doubt I will find out in the near future. So please bear with me for putting the seperate parts of the pattern  for you instead of just clicking on a button.

Just click each picture to bring up a full size pic.

Please send me a pic of your finished pieces, as I would love to show them on my blog. I have done purple, but you can choose whatever colours of thread, or fabric you like.
I can't wait to see all the different stitcheries.

This pattern is for personal use only, and not for commercial purposes. It may not be sold, or be published on another blog, or,website

I hope that you enjoy this little pattern.
