Be on the lookout for patterns

I've been trying to find freebie patterns for each theme, and most of them are pretty easy - I can come up with at least 3 or 4 for each theme. Except the pine cone - it's nearly impossible to find a free pattern that will work. Or any pattern, really. As far as I can tell, pine cones are not an easy thing to find a cross stitch pattern for!

If you happen across any, please let me know so I can list them in October. Also, since it may be difficult to find freebies, ANY pinecone pattern suitable for an ornament would be appreciated. If you see a pattern in a chart or book, let me know where to find it. I have a few, but not many.

Thanks for your help!

Could we email a couple of the more active freebie designers (e.g., Maryse, Floss Box) to see if they'd be willing to design something for us?

They aren't stitched, but I've always liked these ribbon pine cone ornaments:

I could design a pinecone if you need one!

I think you guys have some excellent ideas! I say go for it and see what you can come up with - either designing a pattern or asking other pattern designers to put one together.

Jennifer, I think I have. I'm going to search and I let you know asap, ok?

Jenn, it's not a pine cone but there's a Valentine freebie at LinaBear Creations. http://www.linabear.com/index.php?main_page=page_3

I just joined the SAL today, and as I was looking around at different things, I noticed there were only one or two free pinecone designs listed for October.

There is a really nice one here:

Go to grilles gratuites and scroll down the page, and you will see it. It is a reasonable size for a Christmas tree ornament, and a very nice pinecone.
