The city is dressed in pink as our cherry (and plum) trees have started to bloom. Here is a tree in front of our house.
Gorious, isn't it? It's a pale pink. I'm waiting for the vibrant pink ones to match the pink in this framed piece that I picked up today.
The colours of the stitched piece is very fuschia pink. I had previously picked up this weird greeny-brown frame (pre-made) on the cheap wondering what I would ever use with it. Even my framer was surprised at how well the two pieces worked together. It's too bad the photo just doesn't do it justice. And this will be hard to let go, but it will be a present for a very good friend who has always admired my stitching but is not a stitcher herself.
The next piece is also from a pre-made cheapie frame. It's from Carriage House Samplings but I forget its name at the moment. I just love how it suited the distressed frame. I am very happy with how both pieces turned out!
Now, here comes Giveaway #2 which is for those who would like to a "Prim" stitch. I will probably include a piece of linen too!
If you are interested in this giveaway, please:
- Leave me a comment stating that you would like to be included in giveaway #2.
- Make sure I have a way of contacting you by leaving me your email if this is not already in your blog's profile.
- Here's the make-you-work-for-it bit - please tell me (if this isn't too personal) what volunteer work you do, or would like to do one day.
I will draw a winner at the end of the month. Please go to the previous post to see Giveaway #1.
Thank you for stopping by. It was fun to read your comments on my last post. May you be kissed with sunshine every day this week!
