As I was searching the web for 'stuff', I came across Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara. I thought that her Design Wall Monday might be of interest. There are lots links there from quilters who signed up to show what was on their own design walls. Judy also has free quilt patterns.
Sew, Mama, Sew! has free patterns as well. The Blossom Bag shown on the home page is a down loadable PDF pattern. It's worth a look! Check out the blog too.
Anja Rieger Design has interesting machine and hand embroidery designs.The project/gallery page is inspiring and may give you some ideas. Her blog is here.
Pins and Needles has some free stitching tutorials and patterns. This is well worth a look.
