Freebie - Chartmakers

This was such a sweet little stitchery. It's old too, so I left off the black border with the date in it. I'm still considering whether I will stitch a two-row black border around the whole design though, but for now it is finished:

Prairie Schooler Freebies

I've been a bit lax in posting of late, sorry about that. To make up for that, I am posting THREE freebies from the Prairie Schooler. Sad to see that they have shut their doors after 30+ years, but nice to see they are still offering a Prairie Schooler Santa this year :-)

As The Prairie Schooler have ceased business, all the freebies are now retired, so I cannot include links. Apologies.
