I have been busy with lots of stuff this month...the house is getting a spring fix-up and new paint outside, and I'm trying to get more time to stitch as the month runs down. Finished this Hummel child for my Mom's birthday next month, just need to make it into a pillow. It is called Lily of the Valley, which is the May flower, and my mom loves the little Hummel children, so...
For a kit, this was fairly detailed, with lots of blended threads. I used the aida in the kit because it's a pillow and needs to be more sturdy.
I also did another block of Carriage House's Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, the first block this time! Here is my progress so far.....four done, eight to go!
If you recall, I'm insanely stitching this on 40ct silk gauze over one. Still debating the issue of filling in the background. Some blocks are quite full, like the one center top, others are not, like the first one. It's hard to hide threads on that sort of block. Will decide later, I think.
April is just about gone, hope everyone is enjoying the seasonal changes in your part of the world!
