Hi, Primmies, for everyone affected by Hurricane Irene, I wish to say that our thoughts are with you and hope that you have family and friends should you be in need of help. Some areas have had devastating damages and I am so sorry. We had some minor damage to our breezeway roof and have water leaking in the light fixtures, Mr. Glen Oaks is on it as we speak. He is also cleaning up the debris in the yard, a few very large tree limbs and miscellaneous stuff that blew in the yard. I was frightened way beyond the level I should have been. I just panicked all of a sudden Sunday morning, when the trees starting coming down. It was brief (the wind gusts) not even reported on the news for our area, but never the less, it was happening. Juan calmed me down (the cats were reacting to my fright) and things settled down finally. I'm not normally like that, I like to blame menopause on anything unpleasant that I do. So we'll blame menopause.
So on a happy note, here is a link to a free download for a Flying Witch pattern. It's so cute, like the "weathervane" style of folk art. She's sewn and on a dowel stand.
It's a design by Donna Veal of Moonchild's Primitives. She includes links for the grey sheep's wool hair, the fragrant, dried Sweet Annie and rusty bells (they have other rusty tin items as well). Besides sewing, there's some painting and of course a prim stain wash.
Click HERE to
see it and download the pattern. Scroll to almost half way down her main page to the picture of the witch. She changes her free patterns so check back every once in a while for new one.
Here's another link to a prim doll that's sewed and has some painting (face, hair) and she's about 20 inches in length. The pattern includes her clothing.
Click HERE to download. To go to the artist's blog page with a finished color photo click Kaaren of The Painted Quilt. She also says she'd be happy to give you a tutorial for painting the doll's face.
Here's another place for free ornie patterns and a lot of free stitchery patterns that are black and white "doodle" drawings. I guess you could punch needle them, do appliques or maybe even use them in rug hooking. They are really nice.

As I find more free pattern sites I will post them for you.
Just have to share......................
