Best wishes and a gift for you.

Happy New Year to all the wonderful people who helped make gentlestitches a success in 2015.  Thank you for clicking on my wee blog, stopping by my ravelry pattern shop, looking at and downloading my patterns and most of all for being a great friend.a gift of a crochet butterfly pattern
My gift to you is this free and very easy Butterfly pattern. Download it here or head over to my online shop at  Ravelry. I have many plans in 2016 which include my home spun yarn, knitting and crochet patterns, dog, cat and critter toys, (road tested by the very best toy tester on the planet. Easy the weimaraner!) and some anipal mini mees. I also plan to have a more “Crocheted Christmas” next year with hand-made tree ornaments and a gentlestitches nativity set.

Start the New Year right with a visit to Squirrel Picnic’s New Year’s purikura party and stay tuned for an exciting new book! 2016 is going to be a big year for the written word. Join me in a year of more. More writing, more making things, more picture-taking, more water drinking and more exercise doing.

BUTTERFLIES are about new beginnings and flying off leaving the past behind. Raise your water bottles and join me in a drink to a healthy, happy,prosperous, creative and LOVE FILLED new year! Cheers!
