Spring In My Step



This weekend was so beautiful here in Philadelphia.
I have been inspired lately, with all the trees
blooming, to stitch something with a 
Spring theme.
  
I sat outside in the sunshine and did some 
stitching and finished up this Spring box.
I love the Lily of the Valley that 
grow next to our driveway.  This 
box reminds me that they are on 
there way.

This is a motif from a Blackbird Designs
Sampler, Quaker Garden.  I found 
some pretty chenille yarn, in just
the right color, to put
around the top.

I hope you are having beautiful
spring weather where you are too.
Happy stitching. 

P.S. I'm just about to release another
pattern :)  Also a in a flower theme.
Keep a look out, I will be posting pics of
it this week.
