2 Weekend Finishes!

I was able to get 2 quick things stitched up over this past weekend! Both of these were so much fun to stitch up. First is a freebie from SMO called “Melon” this was such a fun design to do! I stitched it on the new DMC 14 ct Marble Aida a lt. Blue color with DMC floss. I just love the little bees swarming around the watermelons. I think I will make this into a cube, I never made one so I am excited about trying it out!! I love to look for different ways to finish things :)

Next is a cute “Happy St. Pattys Day” bear, this was so much fun to stitch!! This is a freebie from Vee’s Cross*Stitch Designs and Frames Newsletter! I stitched it on 28 ct mint linen, used CPR Floss & DMC…isn’t that little bear cute looking over the clover :)

Until next time! Happy Stitching!

March BC Snapper

After a frog visiting me for the past 6 days I finally got my March BC Snapper square done! YEAY!! This was a very quick one to stitch up! I did send the frog packing, but he just insisted coming back!! I sure hope that he has left for a long time now! I wonder if the reason for all the frogs visiting my stitching is because Spring is in the air here at my house….lol

Stitching for March I have a few things I need & would like to do! I need to stitch my “Sweet Spring” tuck for the TS tuck exchange for this month. I have my pattern already picked out, so I am hoping to start on it this weekend. Also there is another Stitch-N-Swap on TS, this month is to stitch an egg, so I have been looking for a nice pattern for that one as well. I did received my Stitch-N-Swap from last month, it is a pretty Celtic Hearts stitched by Shelli. I don’t know how I will finish this off yet! I think we will have the Stitch-N-Swap each month & if participate in each month then when we are done I might make a nice wall hanging out of the squares I collected :)

Until next time! Happy Stitching!
