Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
This is another pretty cross stitch chart from Thérèse de Dillmont. These particular patterns come from a DMC Library Cross Stitch New Designs 6th Series booklet (Bibliothéque DMC Point De Croix Nouveaux Dessins 6me Série) by TH. DE Dillmont.
It contains several different types of borders, wide, thin, and all over motifs plus designs of people. Some of the designs include three couples in national costumes, farmers, bakers and circus scenes including jugglers, acrobats and clowns.
To save these designs, simply click on the image above. It will open in a new window and there you can use the right click menu to “save image as” or print using your computer’s options. You can also use the green print friendly button at the bottom of this post.
I shared a chart of bunnies from one of her other booklets back in February. If you like this post, be sure to visit our Facebook Fanpage so you can get updates every time we post new patterns.

With Mother’s Day approaching we thought sharing some basic embroidery stitches for borders may come in handy. These embroidered borders can be used to embellish a hankie, blouse or towel to give as a gift.
Below are a couple of how-to pages on embroidery stitches that may give you more ideas for borders or embellishments you can add to items for gift giving:
Here is the image of the Border Stitches page and it can also be found as a PDF file if you’d like to download a copy.
All the pages shown can be enlarged for better viewing once opened in another window or right clicked and saved to your computer.
