Busy Hands, Happy Hearts!
This month we have Spring showers, May flowers and the usual visitor romping and chomping through the garden! The long flower motifs can be used to trim pillowcases or a table cloth. Or you can embroider the entire motif to frame or create a pretty crewel pillow top.
The three vintage decorative labels at the top can be personalized with initials or a date to sew onto the back of big projects like quilts or other things that you want to "sign" or leave a maker-identity etc. Stamp to cloth large enough to fit inside a small embroidery hoop, do the embroidery then cut out label leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance around the edges to turn under; use a blind-stitch to sew it to your project like an applique. The cross stitch designs are unique and fun for kids!
