Doe a Deer....
Doe a deer, a female deer.....you know the rest, I will spare you my singing, but I do want to share with you this great sampler of the beloved song from the Sound of Music. Wouldn't this pattern be perfect for the drama lover (the theater kind, not the drama llama kind) or music teacher in your life? It would look great in a music classroom or office. What about a theater's waiting room? Silver Creek Samplers has created this pattern, along with the remainder of the song to complete... the sampler.

Turn it Up!
Growing up in the 80's radios aka boomboxes were huge! You had to have serious guns to carry your radio around. You would take you radio to the beach and everyone had to listen to what you were playing. If you were lucky, the cutie on the towel a few feet down would come over and you two could cut a rug. Nowadays, you are isolated with earbuds and wear too much sunscreen. You can relive your glory days with this awesome pattern from Daily Cross Stitch. It is a must that you put on Van... Halen's 1984 while stitching this. Tease your hair into a mall claw and have some fun! This pattern is perfect for those in your family or circle of fans that have their feet firmly planted in the 80's. It is also perfect for those of us who love the movie Say Anything. Make sure you stitch this up and raise it above your head. Stitch this pattern up for your favorite DJ. Stitch it onto a bag for their record collection.

Regardless of what type of music you love, there is a pattern for you. I love this sampler by Candamar Designs. It touches on all types of music and reminds us that regardless of the type, music brings us together. This pattern is a bit more subdue and traditional than the other patterns above but that doesn't mean it is any less. It covers so many varieties of music that it fits any style. From Jazz to Country, there is stitch and song for everyone. This pattern would look great on a bag... for your instrument or on a t-shirt or jacket. Show your musical pride.

Although there are different types of music, it is the one thing that brings people together. It offers comfort to us when we are sad, brings us tears of joy and allows us to bond over a melody. PixlStitch has created a bright modern design featuring a young girl listening to music. The shapes and colors are different, just like music, but everyone can appreciate the song being heard. This would be a wonderful project to cross stitch for the friend who is hip, modern and upbeat.

I Love Music
Release your inner 80's child with this fun I Love Music pattern from Anita Stitch. This is a simple pattern that is perfect for beginners. It would be fun to use plastic canvas and make this pattern into a pin to wear. You could also stitch it on a totebag or jacket using waste canvas. Customize the pattern even more by changing the colors to fight your style. Make up several for all of your favorite band members at school to show that you support music and the arts.
