April Showers?

Hey, Friends!

Here is the April Word Play by With thy Needle & Thread, framed and now hanging on my office door.  Not a great pic taken with my phone! 

I finished stitching the design that was a gift from The Scarlett House at the PALS conference last year.  Thanks Tanya!  It was a fun stitch!  It’s in a small shadow box that sort of reminded me of barn (drift) wood and added some shells around to keep the shore attitude.  It’s stitched on 28ct Tea Linen over one.     

Hope everyone has a wonderful spring weekend – with a bit of time for stitching and finishing!

The Gift of Stitching
Issue 59 December 2010
 I was supposed to stitch a snowlady/gent for February's ornament in Themalicious but got permission to stitch a snowflake instead as I hate stitching with white. Liz, bless her, found this in blue which was brilliant. I added a silver thread to the blue which really makes it sparkle! Somehow this got into the 3D requirement for March as well so I am technically behind a month!
