Christmas Hearth design

I had started this design last week when I sewed with the FswFs group. I have completed the embroidery, but have not decided what to do with it as yet.
Finished embroidery
 
with 3 red stockings
 
with a blue stocking
 
I am not sure why the photos have that wrinkly look to it as the fabric does not actually look like that at all. I think if you click on each photo individually, the photo will look better.
 
I think the embroidery looks fine just on its own. If anyone would like the pattern for the embroidery-- I am going to attempt to put it on the sidebar-- and hopefully you can download it from that. Can you please tell me if it works, as I have not done this before and am taking a big leap, and giving it a try.
 
PS
After ages at attempting the above ( with a lot of cursing and swearing under my breath--------)--
 Forget what I just wrote there-- because it did not work. I scanned the image into the computer and when I went to put it in my side bar, the computer said that the image was not in a recognisable format! So I thought I would add it to the main body-- but that failed as well as it does not recognise my scanned picture as an image.
 
 
So, if someone out there has scanned a drawing and put it in the side bar and it worked-- please give me directions of how I can do it too.
 
In the meantime, if you would like the pattern please email me and I will see if I can email the pattern to you instead. Hopefully that works!!
 
I feel really dumb when I do anything like this on the computer-- it makes me cranky and frustrated because I don't know how to do it when everyone else seems to be able to do these effortlessly!! I master one thing, Hurray! Then I try the next and Failure!!
 

 
 
PPS
I was obviously in a cranky mood  and was venting my annoyance at my poor computer skills. DH decided that he would give it a try and Bingo!-- we now have it in the side bar. He scanned it in as a jPeg and it worked. I hope. Please tell me if you can click on the picture and print the pattern and if the image comes out clear.

Dear Yvonne,
lovely pattern, what a neat design, I like the buttons on it as well. Mostly the one with the blue button in the middel.
I was not able to click on the design and download. Don't know, because I have done JPEG before and it worked.
Greetings,
Sylvia

Cheryll here... Did you save it as a JPEG file? That means did you add .jpeg after the file name? Just a thought!

I find most things I do on the computer is a question of trial and error, LOL!
It is a lovely design, Yvonne, I will try to download it. I don't think there is a chance I get around to doing it this year, but it is too good to miss :-)
Thank you for your generosity,
xx

Hi Yvonne. I love your fire hearth with the 3 red stockings. Although it looks wonderful without them too. I tried the sidebar link and it works. Thank you for sharing it with us. I'm adding this to my to do list!

Such a lovely way to show the buttons off. Thanks for sharing the stitchery design. The buttons are even more super-cute in real life.

Your stitchery is absolutely gorgeous!Those buttons really finish it off beautifully. Thanks for sharing your design with us. I haven't tried downloading it yet but am eager to do so. My stitcheries always appear wrinkly like yours do on my blog for some unknown reason.
