April Check In - Theme-tas-Stitch

I am having so much fun this year with my Theme-tas-Stitch SAL  hosted by Kerry.  The theme this month was water.

I also had one more Finish - started during March Madness I am including in my April Showers stitching.
Girls, Kathy Barrick
This is sideways.  I will finish it with the bird standing up.  I figured the first thing needed after planting is watering and all the trees,and vines and flowers need a lot of rain.  So I reached out and felt this would also work for the April theme.

This will be a Christmas Gift for my daughter - brand new mom of a baby girl.  It is also works for My Memories of Mom - her garden was amazing.  We spent hours of our Summer Vacation weeding.  I always tried to get out of it by telling her I didn't know the difference between the weeds and the flowers and she would always tell me that was okay, but wouldn't I feel very sad if I cut short the life of a flower.  Thanks Mom!.  

Next month May is Monochrome.  I am going to do a lot of Brown/Gold stitching.  I plan on working on several wips with shades of brown.

  2. What a cute finish--a perfect gift for your daughter :) I look forward to seeing your monochrome finish. Having just done that LHN Spring one in green, I am hooked on one color stitching :)
