Being the last weekend of the month means its reveal time for the monthly challenge over at Needlecraft Haven chosen by Christine.
I used the lovely silken threads I showed you in my Gifted Gorgeousness post. They stitched up really nicely using 2 strands on 22ct golden aida. I went for a traditional red/green combination.
I have a person in mind for this as a Christmas gift so decided to put it into a little frame and add the wording ribbon along the bottom. The frame only cost £1 from a well known supermarket so a bargain gift.
Sunday, April 30th is also the birthday of a family member. When sorting out I came across Royal Blossoms 2007 by Just Nan. The charm was stapled to the chart - when did I do that? I decided that would make the perfect small gift and use up more of my forgotten about stash.
Stitched on a piece of 28ct jobelan from a Polstitches grab bag using the asked for threads it turned out well and fitted into a 4" x 4" frame perfectly. This frame has a double mount so the depth of the bee doesn't matter.
Such a detailed Queen Bee charm?
1st May is May day so we have an extra days holiday, time for plenty of stitching, reading, gardening or are you out and about having fun doing other things.
Thanks for taking time to visit
Love and blessings to you all
