My Fish

It took me a while to find/decide on a fish but I did and just finished it. It's a freebie from the blog . I thought it was especially appropriate for me to stitch because we had a koi pond at our house before this one. I miss watching those fish (they'd eat out of my hand) and listening to the waterfall.

I used DMC variations for the main orange, the greens, and the yellow.

April Ornament

Well I finally managed to stitch my April ornament among all the other stuff I had to do, gardening, planning a wedding and playing with my new grand-daughter (3 mo. old).
I am sure everyone recognizes this pattern from JCS ornament issue.
My May ornament was already stitched unfortunately I left my stitched piece in Florida before coming back to Canada. So I will post it when I return in the fall. I stitched Quaker Nesting Bird from Aury
Well now I am on a roll, on to June.

June ornament

Here is my June "Fruit" ornament. It's not a "Fruit" stitch design but the finished shape is a strawberry, i.e. a "Fruit"! The design is from Aury's blog. Thanks Aury for sharing the pretty design! I stitched on 16ct Antique white aida with my chosen DMC threads.

Happy Stitching!

April Rabbit

I am slow but here is my rabbit. The stitching has been completed for a while, I just haven't had the time to finish him of. This design was a freebie from the chart shop. I just love him. i am working on my May design and maybe with luck I will caught up by the end of June. thanks for looking.


I have chosen  for the fruit for my June piece -a wreath of berries. This is a Danish Chart from Eva Rosenstand which I have had for many years and one I enjoy stitching. Have stitched it on 40 count permin linen using one strand of DMC eorked over 2 threads.
