Pattern Size: 70w X 117h ~ I did include a legend for the colors in the chart, but as always you can pull threads from your stash and get creative ~ I look forward to see everyone’s finished stitches. You can send me an email, post a reply here, or share your pictures on the Stitching the Night Away Facebook group.
My kids and I love this quote from Maya Angelou. It’s such a beautiful way to remind ourselves to be kind to each other because you never know what storm someone else is weathering in their life. Giving a smile to someone may be the small thing they need to help lift them up again.
Since the first time I read Letter to My Daughter this quote has been stuck with me and I’ve used the phrase with my kids on many occassions in teaching them to be be kind to other people.
With the recent passing of Maya Angelou, my youngest son has recently taken this quote to heart even more than before and he has been using it quite frequently. He asked me to chart it out so I could stitch it, frame it, and hang it near our front door. Once I had it charted out, of course I wanted to share the pattern with everyone as a free gift here.
The truth of the matter is, you are all rainbows for me. Having such a wonderful community of stitchers and crafters means so much to me, you are the reason this website even exists. This pattern is being made free to everyone to celebrate that spirit of community and the passions that bring us all together.
Lately the weather seems a bit moody around the United States. It’s supposed to be Spring, but a lot of us are still seeing Winter weather and cold temperatures. I finally saw some sunshine yesterday and today looks pretty good… it might turn out to be a really sunny week here in my part of Virginia.
Enjoy the pattern and please share with a friend 🙂
I may have spent the morning on Pinterest … again.

I hopped over to the link to check it out and almost jumped up and down with excitement when I found there was an entire page with several free blackwork charts.
Oh yes, these are being saved into my file immediately.
I guess I’ve just got October on the brain – Fall is my favorite time of the year. The good news is that my distraction resulted in a fun little freebie for you 🙂
There is no floss legend for this pattern, because the idea is to use up all those leftover bits of floss you have or to choose your favorite color combination for your very own unique piece. Pattern size is 110w x 50h and only uses two floss colors, all solid cross stitches, no backstitching, and can be stitched on any fabric you like. [Read more…]
