Thank you for answering all the questions.
I do had one of my own (posted in the first post of these patterns).
I was wondering, .... in the magazine day second is in mirror image of the one you show above.
Is there a reason for?


Thank you for me to participate in a nice SAL。
Which pattern also it is stitching nice and fun.
We look forward from now on.

Lizzy Pizzy

Thank you ♥♥♥♥

Kathy Krause

Thanks - I've got the first two done on the large sampler - this week I've got to catch up.


Thank you for this delightful project! You've ended my search for the perfect 12 days of Christmas design. x


Love, love, love these - thank you so much and may God bless you in your work! blessings, marlene

Bergamote de Nancy

Thanks a lot!!! I bigan to stitch the first one and I like it!


Judi Fischer

I so love these patterns. I am placing them around the border of an afghan and putting a Scandinavian design sampler of St. Nicholas in the center. I wish I could attach a picture as it is so lovely. Judi Fischer

June Abel

Missed the firsst 3 days. How can I download them? I don't see them on your site. Thanks!

June Abel

Found the site! Thanks!


I'm enjoying this Paulette, thank you. I'm doing ornaments and have started Three French Hens. The first two days are stitched.

Melody Bryan

I shouldn't admit how stupid I am but all my whole life - I thought the song was 4 calling birds - I never knew it was 4 colly birds meaning black birds - duh! thanks for that Paulette and for your beautiful designs! I will probably do ornaments and since I have the silks originally used - I will probably stitch all mine in silks but might use some creative freedom on the colors as we go along. I already know I'd like to use Gloriana Florimell Antique black for the 4 Colly birds - cheers and thanks Mel

Annie Haynes

I am stitching these lovely designs separately rather than as a sampler. I plan to finish them as little pillows and put them in a basket or bowl, similar to your delightful Serial bowl concept. Thanks for these fun free designs! May I ask the significance of the crown motif? I'm thinking it might be symbolic of Christ the King, but I'd really like to know. Thanks again, Paulette!

Louise Glennon

Thank you so very much for these beautiful designs! Love each and every one of them! <3

Katherine M. in Austin

Thank you for this latest design! I am really thrilled that you are finishing out this series. A friend of mine collected books of carols and Christmas songs and "four
colly birds" is the line in all of them.

Teresa Graue

Thanks for another great design! I'm almost finished with Third Day so I'm not falling too far behind - yet! I'm making individual ornaments, using same base fabric but using various left-over floss from many other completed projects. I'm so glad to use up those beautiful partial spools of green and red floss, in cotton, silk, variegated and solids. Each ornament is unique but complementary to each other. Love it!


Thank you so much for this series! Looking forward to stitching them all!

Stitching Noni

I still can't decide how to stitch them... I love the idea of the sampler, but then I think individual pillow ornies is a great idea! I must get myself sorted out though otherwise I will not even have started before Christmas let alone finished!
Thank you for another lovely design :o)
Hugs xx

Donna Pheneger

Thank you - looking forward to doing these.

Jackie Banks

Thanks Paulette for the freebie, I will be stitching them as ornaments for their own special tree.


I haven't started yet. I have to use the printer at the library to download the charts. (I am printer-less right now.) I'll do them as little pillows too. Thank you so much for the chart!

Judi Fischer

I just finished Fourth Day and I do believe that the 1st green snowflake is missing the bottom stitch, easy to fix. I can't wait for day 5. Thanks again, Judi Fischer

Hi, searched your site trying to find a way to contact you but couldn't find one. I am with an EGA chapter and would like to feature your new Mystery Sampler in our newsletter but need your permission. What is your policy on this? Will you even allow it?

Jennifer Stumpf

Paulette, I can't find an email to send you so will ask here-- this is off the wall but back at the Shepherd's Retreat in 2012, you made up a little pin keep called She Maketh Willingly With Her Hands. I am wondering if this will be released at any time? I love it so much and really want to make it!! Thank you.
