On the needlework front, I have been working on this cross stitch for a few weeks as in starting it before Easter. Originally it was a much bigger piece with a Peeps quote on it; however, the painted canvas with acrylic and fabric medium proved difficult to stitch on as a larger piece. I love the color. But I reassessed, and then made it much smaller using only 3 peeps. It is about 3 by 4 inches. And I should not have used 3 strands of floss. But hindsight is hindsight and I will not start it a 3rd time. It will be done very far in advance for next year. It will still make a great addition to my tiered tray.
And as I enjoy all your favorite projects on the various blogs I browse over the week, I am following Maggie Fellow's advice on Making a Lather to get out a WIP to finish. I made this small wall quilt top last year. It was an easy top with 11 various fabrics stitched from selvage to selvage. It was a McCalls kit with preprinted and coordinating fabrics. I love the hexie print and tried making some solid color smaller ones for additional flowers and abandoned that. So now I am just going to add some bright leaves and quilt it. Perhaps I will add to the picket fence with a vine and small flowers? Waiting for inspiration to peek its head.
