Morgan Freeman Tapestry - Free Chart




Mr. Freeman was the first man I ever hand knotted. It was a request by Christopher, but we both truly love the work of Mr. Freeman... so it was an easy request to fill.

I am offering the chart I created to make it - free to other fans that may want to use it. The chart can be used to make a tapestry, a blanket... whatever craft you are doing that involves a charted design. Enjoy

If you are a fan of Morgan Freeman, a couple a movies (off the beaten path) that you may not have seen, are 10 Items or Less (2006) - IMDb and 5 Flights Up (2014) - IMDb - I just love them both.

If you are looking for more things that are free - check out my other website - Creative Public - it is a compendium of resources to all kinds of things in the public domain.

Pretty In Pink! - Free Chart!

I am proud to offer this chart free for your crafting pleasure. She'd make a lovely cross stitch piece, or a mini tapestry via hand-knotting as I've begun to do.  Feel free to shake it up - change the color scheme etc.  Enjoy and please share your finished pieces if you want. I'd love to see what you can do!

More beautiful girls - one original design

I finished this beauty from a pattern I found at BraceletBook.com here

This crying girl kiss pattern was also found at BraceletBook.com - here

This red headed beauty was a pattern created by me from artwork found on the net. I make no claims to the ownership of this design. I only converted the image so that I could knot her up.

Below is the chart I created. Please feel free to use it. I would love to see your finished work... especially if you change up the colors etc. Enjoy

Plus Size Fashions - Affordable and sometimes... Free!



The above shirt is one that I got from TwinkleDeals.com. I joined the site after my sister got me a dress there. At first, I wasn't even aware that you could earn and win free clothes. It was a bonus when I was offered the above shirt for free. I pin all of the clothes I want to buy from TwinkleDeals.com on Pinterest anyway... so why not earn clothes! I've also earned a free dress, and plan to buy from this site frequently. A few things to keep in mind about the site. Orders are coming from the Orient... so it could take a long time to get your order... but it will come. The sizes are much smaller than you would normally find. For example a 7x might only be a size 18 US. Be sure to check the measurements. Each item has measurements listed on the sale page.

I don't buy into gimmicks and promotion sites. I wasn't looking for this... it kind of found me. I am posting about it on my blog to share the love with you, and also to show off the great plus size fashions I find while shopping there.
