~All of our free pattern days are archived in the FREE PATTERNS tab at the top of this page.~As we approach the New Year our thoughts turn to hopes and dreams. We've come across some wonderful *free* patterns featuring "Peace" and "Love". These words and symbols could be used for any number of projects : a little L-O-V-E would be great for Valentine's day !
