Free Pattern from Countryside Softies .. and our Village Bunting Project

I very much admire the work of Amy Adams of  LucyKate Crafts  and was delighted to hear that a book of her softie patterns was being published next month.  And in the meantime … Amy is generously sharing one of the patterns from her book – the Dragonfly – as a free downloadable design, it’s available here
 
I think there might be one of two of these irresistible insects hovering around our gazebo this year!   Click here to learn more about Countryside Softies – it’s definitely going on my wish list!
Meanwhile – just to keep you updated – our village bunting project is going really well – flags cut now number well into 4 figures – yes that’s more than ONE THOUSAND flags – and the afternoon for sewing machine owners to start to assemble the bunting has been arranged for May.  Tea and cakes will be on hand, and it should be a fun time for all.
This has proved to be a really successful idea – everyone from the children at the village school, to the elderly ladies who attend our Lunch Club has had a hand in cutting flags – and we are all looking forward to seeing our contributions fluttering in the (hopefully!) sunshine at our Fete in July.

The dragonfly is sweet thanks for sharing. I came by to let you know that I have used your Scottie applique pattern in a quilt square. I posted about it today and sent everyone that is interested over to check out the pillow and your site. Hope you will come by and see how I used your free pattern. Thank you so much!
