Woodland Sampler (April) - The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery



 
Hello Peeps!
  
 
As you know, I have been busy stitching away on my tulips in April and
have fallen behind with my Woodland Sampler
 
Time to sort that out!



 
April | Woodland Sampler

 


Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All, Iced Coffee colour
 2 over 1 using DMC threads
 
Started: 6 May 2016
Finished: 8 May 2016

Total stitching time: 6hrs
 

The April month design is a little Jackalope.
 
Jackalopes are mythical animals of North American folklore,
that look like a hare with antlers.
 



See you soon for the May design.

Toodles,
Mii

      C'est fou le temps qu'elles nous prennent ces petites Croix :D
      Chez moi c'était la pause Pepsi Max ce weekend, il faisait vraiment trop chaud pour boire du thé! Pour une fois que le soleil était de sorti!

    1. Thanks Carol, I thought it would be a good idea to stitch one design a month.
      I am, however, stitching them all on the same piece of fabric.
