April releases!

Three releases this month.....and one of them is a new favorite of mine!

Pretty in Perle - Needle Lady Pocket

The Needle Lady Pocket is stitched with perle cotton from Classic Colorworks. It's big, chunky, and so much fun to stitch (and practical for storing needle packets!).  But if perle isn't your "thing," use the cotton embroidery floss with the same names.  This was my first perle project and I had so much fun with it.  So much so that there will be another coming soon!  

Next is the Hometown Holiday release.

Hometown Holiday - Town Church
This design presented a challenge when I chose to design a nativity in miniature.  
One stitch here, one stitch there, and there it is.  So tiny!

And last in the releases is the fifth Calendar Girl.

Calendar Girl - May
April showers bring May flowers.  Then for June......May flowers bring.......
I'll let you guess a while.

Ron reached the six-month anniversary of his last cancer treatment this month.  All is well!  Thank you for your continued support.  There will be more scans, doctor visits, lab work, etc in the months and years ahead so we have learned very quickly to take life one day at a time and be thankful for all of these cancer-free reports!


Our backyard blooms!!
