Mary's Snowy Scene

Here's my April Snowy Scene! It is "First Snow," a freebie from The Drawn Thread (available on their website). I stitched it on 32 ct. Smokey Pearl using various threads in my stash-most importantly Sable by GAST for the tree and Forest Glade also GAST for the pine needles. (I wish the color of the linen showed up better in the photo-it is a gray blue-very good for the design I think). Thanks for all your comments on my previous posts! I really appreciate it!

It's April

Four Calling Birds

I am really starting to enjoy stitching this.  I can't believe in all the years I have been stitching I have never stitched a project about the Twelve Days of Christmas.

April Stitch Finish

          4th Day of Christmas
           By Margaret Sherry

  This month is moving way too fast. I'm a full week behind on all of my stitching. This lady is awesome! !  Like my other days she is outlined in darker shades of the colors used. I of course made mistakes, but some I just rolled with.  

   For instance, I had stitched the perfect 4. At least I thought that I had. As I was organizing my outline colors, I realized I had stitched it in the wrong color. Then I discovered I had used the shade for my number for the legs. I already had a bad headache, but really wanted to try to finish my outlining.  I left the color of the legs alone. I frogged the number, and stitched it in the shade that was for the legs. Yes, I switched them. Of course between my head pounding, and my husband distracting me, I goofed stitching the number. I just left it, and evened it out before adding the backstitching. 

   I'm happy with her. She stitched up so fast, and has style. I wanted to give these some individuality, and she has it!

      Happy Stitching, and may the frogs stay far away!
