We have been asked to post a few cross stitch pieces that pertain to spring or Easter...here are a few of mine.
I just finished this piece that was a SAL offered by Tempting Tangles. I haven't had time to finish it properly as it just finished up about a week ago. I just love Deborah's designs.
This was a gift from a friend of mine, the lovely Ms. S. It is my favorite Easter ornament and is always hanging in my dining room.
I just finished stitching this freebie from The Snowflower Diaries blog. These bunnies have no calories!! LOL I haven't had time to finally finish this either, hopefully by next Easter!! You can find the pattern here. Just scroll down and look on the left hand side, you will see the picture.
This was the very first Easter design I stitched and finished myself. As you can see I didn't do a very good job centering the design, but I had a lot of fun stitching it!
Our Easter traditions start with a trip to church to celebrate the Risen Savior. I think it's one of my favorite holidays because there is so much to celebrate! Redemption, reconciliation, and the promise of a life in heaven after we leave this realm. I love that it falls in the spring, when the earth seems to come alive with all the flowering plants, the new buds on the trees, and the warmer temperatures. We used to have an Easter Egg hunt when our son was younger. He's too old for that now...but we still enjoy our baskets with lots of goodies. When I was a young girl we would travel to see my Grandmother, wear pretty dresses which were always new for Easter, and all attended church together with brand new bonnets. I hope wherever you are that you are enjoying the changing of the seasons and the promise of new beginnings.
And now....hop on over to http://sewingafterseven.blogspot.co and see what she has to offer! Happy Hopping and Happy Easter!
