It was a good weekend for stitching! Spring has definitely sprung; there are spring showers, spring flowers, and lots of sunshine! I started a few new projects, stitched along on a few old projects, and finished up my Spring Sampler Stitchery while it rained.
I balanced out the lettering with some simple stitching here and there, and a few colonial knots for texture. This is definitely a feel it stitched piece. I mounted it in a hoop frame, stitched up the back with a running stitch around the edges, and covered it up with a green felt circle. Ready to hang!
I've had a few emails asking for the template for stitching, so you can now download the stitching template here (flickr) or here (dropbox). Add your own colours and free-hand flowers or bugs. Bugs are very spring-y. I look forward to seeing how yours turn out too!
