  3. I am so excited to have found your site! Thank you for being so willing to share so freely of your talents. I am so excited to teach my girls to cross stitch! I loved cross stitching as a little girl when my grandmother taught me. Like you, I feel it is a lost art. I hope my girls love it as much as I do. Thanks for the cute, FREE patterns!

  4. Hi Kari! I have been asked to do a little watercolor project for a Stake Girls' camp this summer and wondered if I could have permission to use the little floral wreath on this site (or a close approximation of it) for a little art project. I thought it looked simple enough to have the girls try to paint it. Would we need to pay you for the rights to use it?
