Good morning... I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend! We had a lovely couple of days. My sister-in-law and family came to visit, also my DH's grandpa came. My in-laws live next door. So we had a nice time. The kids enjoyed having their cousins over. We had a huge Easter dinner after church.
I got a little stitching done... this was a freebie called Bay View Estate from Donna at By the Bay Needlearts... she has a great blog space... you should check it out if you haven't already. (added link below)
I stitched this with the recommended DMC flosses except the house. I used CC Wild Berries. The leaves on the willow are a detached chain stitch... that was fun! The linen is Creme Bruele 40 ct. I stitched it to a hand dyed piece of wool... I'm thinking of mounting it on a box top... will post the entire finished piece when it's all done. http://bythebayneedleart.blogspot.com/2009/03/free-chart-thank-you-for-checking-out.html
