WHERE DID APRIL GO?

Well April came and went before I had time to catch up with it, it did produce along with some extreme storms, a spell of mild sunny weather and in that time no stitching worth mentioning was done, for I took every chance to tackle the fast growing weeds and grasses in my garden. There is always more to be done but I am pleased with what was achieved.

 My March challenge piece  took me a while to complete the border,  here it is my attempt at Byzantine work. The filling is rush stitch which was new to me.  I will post my April piece as soon as I finish the hem.  


 These little chicks were my Easter gift to Finn, I found the pattern on Pinterest the chick bodies were made in one piece that was shaped like a three petal flower, quick and easy to make, and the little ball a good size for little hands, I did not think Chocolate Easter eggs would be a good idea. possibly next year. The girls both got a small basket filled with tiny chocolate eggs with just one chicken on the top.
 


 Have you seen Linen and Threads mystery Sal ? I have just found it and I know I do not need any more starts....... But yes I have started it ! promise photo of my progress when next I post and will try not to leave it so long

The chicks made me smile, so cute and a acceptable Easter gift rather than chocolate :)
