Pieces of April...

Brynwood Needleworks - Schmitz' Sweet Stitches "May Day"

Just in time for the start of a new month, I'm ready to stitch out "May Day" from Kathy Schmitz' Sweet Stitches series.

This one has four little bees that will buzz around the flowers, once they're created. I'll be putting this design onto the scroll bars so I can get right to it.

"Peter Cottontail" is just waiting for the eggs to be fused into the basket, and he's finished. I'll take him off the scroll rods today and add the final touches. Nine designs down. Three to go. I can see the end in sight.

Note: You might notice my reference to Three Dog Night's "Pieces of April" in the title. In case you haven't noticed yet, I love using song titles for many of my blog captions. In the lyrics for this particular song, the refrain kept repeating in my mind as I wrote this post: 

"I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet
I've got pieces of April, but it's a morning in May...

Yes, I have noticed your love of music and titles and words...that play in my head all day. Peter Cottontail looks wonderful as you put away April and move right into May. Buzzing Bees and Bee-uitiful Flowers are perfect for May. Happy Days...

I so often have song snatches running through my head, also. I think there's one for everything that happens. I just saw Kathy Schmitz has a new book coming out with a garden theme. Cute patterns!
