April is Here!

Wow, we've been busy this month! I'll try to post more about what changes are coming soon for my blog. Needless to say several people have been working tirelessly to revamp and improve things around here so I hope everyone will be pleased with the results, which I'm hoping to unveil in the next couple of weeks.

So, Mom and I decided to change things up a bit here and cater to our love of needlework. Mom put her design skills to work and I got the pleasure of playing with my latest toy, PC Stitch Pro. This could get seriously addicting. SOOOOO much fun!

In honor of the arrival of Spring, both the season (and my awesome Niece who shares the name), may we present to you, "Spring's Grace"!

Our sample is stitched on 28 count linen, stitching 2 over, or the equivalent of using a 14 count fabric.  Finished size is appx 7.5"x 7.5" or 115 x 115 stitches.  We used some specialty threads in there, which are listed on the legend. Feel free to experiment. As always, we would really love to see your finished pieces, so please add them to our flickr group

The project is no longer available for free download but will be available soon for purchase.
