Last weekend while on a road trip through wine country, I was enchanted by the beauty of the grape vines, loaded with fruit that is almost ready for harvest. I thought this would make a terrific theme for this week’s freebie roundup!
The design can also be stitched on an Aida band to make a candle or cake band, or use waste canvas or our innovative, clear water soluble canvas to stitch the repeating pattern on a tablecloth, runner or sheets.
Or, stitch any of the individual motifs found in the Grape Harvest pattern using our luminous Light Effects embroidery floss. You’ll find this pattern in the Light Effects section of the DMC Club.
The DMC Club area is free and filled with lots of great patterns you can download. Sign in and check it out!
If you’re planning a harvest gethering, why not stitch a set of napkins or placemats to match the theme? This freebie (shown at right) from the Made to Treasure site requires just three colors of floss and can be worked up quickly, in time for guests.
This design would be pretty stitched on our CharlesCraft Showcase Huck Towel. A free cross stitch chart is included with each towel, including our own version of a realistic cluster of grapes.
