Shell Pattern Roll-Up Ornament

The only design available to anyone from Loretta Spears these days is the free pattern from the Rainbow Gallery website.  It is called Shell Pattern Roll-Up Ornament, dated 1994.    This was on the Rainbow Gallery website and available as a free download but when Rainbow Gallery updated their website, they removed the free design because it uses threads that are discontinued.    However, they have agreed to allow me to post the instructions here.  I will put them in a separate tab above.  Feel free to copy and print these to work for a roll up ornament or an all over pattern for a background.


Lara stitched this ornament.

This is the finished design.  It's quite pretty, isn't it?

Needleart Nut did the finishing of Lara's Shell Pattern Roll Up.  I think it is lovely!
