Updated Version of 'Sanctuary' Free Pattern for Charity
Stitch count 191 x 250
I originally created my pattern, Sanctuary, at the time of the terrible tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 and dedicated it as a pattern that would be sent to anyone who requested it for free, though I do ask that a contribution be made of any size to the charity of your choice to benefit whatever disaster is currently taking place.
That pattern was made on the first software I used when I began designing and it needed to be redrawn into my new software. Since I've been working on new designs I've kept putting off taking the time to move Sanctuary. But viewing the terrible devastation of the tornado that hit Oklahoma this week I decided it was definitely time to make the effort.
I did change the colors for the design to three shades of delft blue and added a title and the verse that inspired the pattern. If anyone has the original Sanctuary and would like the newer one as well, just send a request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We moved here to the inland northwest from Oklahoma and knowing what wonderful people they are and how terrible their ordeal is right now, I hope everyone will keep them in their prayers and if possible make a donation for their relief.
