Four Corners Update

Have you ever had one of "those" moments were you say. . . . ."I knew I forgot something?"  I had one this morning when I realized that the dimensions for the overall finish of Four Corners (see last blog post) was left off of the pattern.  Most of you would  just count it out but I'll post the details here for those that are asking. . . .

Fabric: 30 Count Weeks Cocoa Linen.  Important!  Use the fabric size we recommend  or one that yields a smaller design or you may run out of thread.  32 count linen is a good alternative choice.

Size: 161 x 161 stitches.

Also. . . . . . .I have had email and phone calls on an old design I did for my LNS years back called "The Busy Needle".  It is not available for distribution.  If you own a copy, would you please pay it forward to those who wish to stitch it?  Making copies is not acceptable since the material is copyright protected.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Diane,

    I purchased this particular pattern from The Busy Needle shop in Tucson (visited family for a wedding and made a special stop at this shop immediately after landing in Tucson! Delightful place!). If you'd like to direct the person inquiring about this pattern to me, my email is


  2. You are so sweet to post! Maybe the people seeking it will read the blog post and your offer. :)

  3. Wish you could "re-release" Busy Needle; I bet you'd sell a bunch of them hun..I know I would diffidently buy one; I can't find one anywhere or anyone who wants to part with it...:( I'd even return it when I was done.

    Hugs, Shar

  4. I am interested in the busy needle as well. Would anyone be willing to do it as a traveling pattern? Ie you have a month to stitch it and move it along to another person interested.

  5. I too would love to stitch The Busy Needle and would be interested in a traveling pattern if someone has the pattern and would be willing to share it with us.
    Happy Stitching
