Freebie hunt

I was looking for cross stitch site's which have freebies. I'm part of a group that stitch for charityquilts, but this time I can't find any patterns that match with the requests:(.
The stitching must be about 10x10 cm (55x55 stitches) and have one of the following subjects: giraffe, horse, butterfly of birds.
If anyone can help me find a pattern I'm really glad! And I'm sure the person who get the quilt would be to :).

On my way to find freebies I came to the following site: http://x-plane.org/home/xsdesigners/. In the menu on the top is a link called 'freebie hunt'. You have to answer 6 questions correctly and then you get six free patterns! So I thought let's share this link!

I've also stitched this week. I finished a secret gift for a friend of mine, Matthias, who has a new home since friday. Since he has recieved the gift yesterday it's no longer a secret so I can finally share a photo:p.

As you might figured, it's the picture next to the text:p.
It's a Margaret Sherry design, one of the cattitudes horoscope. (see, I'm learning to mention from who the kit/pattern is! Always forget that...).

It's the 'leo' one. I turned the word 'leo' in to 'leeuw' which is dutch for 'lion' and that is also the dutch word for the zodiac sign 'leo'.

On the other photo you can see how I framed it.
It almost went totally wrong just before the framing,

because after the scanning, there was suddenly a strange yellow spot on the aida. But luckely it went (almost totally!) away after lots and lots of water.

Now I going to bed. Have to get out early tomorrow , 7 o' clock. (well, maybe late for you're opinion, but early for mine:p) And then I have a three day introduction for my new study (real lessons start next week) in the middle of nowhere!

Can you imagine....three days NO stitching, NO internet and NO piano....And...not youre blogs to read!........
How am I ever gonna survive!!! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa :p.

Ok, now I'm really going to sleep, I wrote enough on this post already!

Have a nice week everyone!

Bye! :D

ps @ margaret: I was just updating while you posted! But as you can read above I know tomorrow who my fellow students are. And next week if it's an interesting study.

Thanks again for the hard work you put into making the gift, I really love it:):)

Although there's no furniture and a good working heater in my house, a gift like yours makes it already a bit more liveable and warmer:)
Hug and kiss!

Good luck surviving :D

Good luck going back to college!
To answer the question you asked me, I honestly cannot remember but the set was called "kolobok" so you might be able to find them using a search for that.
