Make Tracks to Little Dear Tracks

Another of my favourite net places is Little Dear Tracks.  It is a sweet site fueled by the unique creative visions of Aimee Ray.  Aimee has published a number of books featuring her special doodle type embroidered motifs. She uses many embroidery techniques in her work and also uses applique, colour tinting and patchwork.  I've borrowed several from the library and I always find inspiration.  Aimee has an etsy shop called littledear.   This is her latest seasonal collection, The Holiday Motif Collection.

Aimee's blogspot is one of my favourite places to visit.  I think you should check it out especially if you enjoy free patterns and tutorials because it is one of the best banks available that I've found.  Her link is here:

A few examples of her offerings

Free Project!

This little free pattern is called " Patchwork Tree Hill" and as Aimee says, it is a great way to use up scraps and can be made bigger or changed about.

Isn't this sweet?  It is called " Flowering Antlers" and generous Aimee offers a tutorial for the five different embroidery stitches used for the flowers as well as a free download pdf.

I just love her latest little acorns and woodland creatures made with felt. Adorable is the only word to describe them.

 What a talented lady!
