Easter Stitching

Lizzie Kate has had such adorable patterns and thus one is no exception.  Lizzie Kate Easter Parade #192.  I stitched Hip Hop minus the letters.  This will be the start of a cute decor piece in the future.  I can see the trio of patterns stiched into pillows for the Spring.  Ivory 16 count Aida cloth used, two threads over one.  DMC colors are 310, 720, 3853, 604, 744, 731, 30, 807, and a pretty aqua #598.  


Happy St Patrick's Day

These two cute patterns are by Stitching with the Housewives.  Leprechaun Lane and Shamrock Farm.  I used chalkboard black 14 count Aida two threads over one.  The colors are all DMC 729, 905, 988, 645, 3733, 310, and 3865.   These will look so adorable as pillows.
