In appreciation for those of you who support me and my studio, here is another in a series of free embroidery designs.
This design replaces the one offered before in its series and will subsequently be replaced by another in a week or so. If you’re enamored with these freebies so much that you want to share with your fellow threadnuts – um, fabric artist – please send your fellow enthusiast here so that they can check out the rest of my embroidery library, tutorials and inspirational stories and photographs.
If you like these freebies and want to make sure you get the rest of the collection, moving forward, consider signing up for my newsletter or Facebook group. Otherwise, come visit often and stay as long as you like.
Should you be inspired to craft something with these designs, please consider sharing photographs of your projects, as I’d love to see them.
YES! I WANT SPRING BORDERS NO. 3
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
– Emma Lazarus
