A May Day Sampler!

Wishing you all
a
sweet & special
May Day!



A FREE chart for your stitching pleasure...

Stitch count ~ 151 x 112

Would look lovely stitched on 40 count over 2 threads with an approximate finished size of 71/2" x 5 3/4". A sweet little size to stitch into a little hanging pinkeep to hold old treasures, such as buttons, hat pins & of course a key!

I think this design would look wonderfully prim on dark linen...Remember...we'd love to see your finished piece
so send us pictures & we'll post them right here!

lately, pay us a visit...there are lots of new cross stitch patterns!


What was your favorite May Basket treat? My favorite was from the Gazda girls, their little cups with pipe cleaner handles were traditionally filled with popcorn, peanuts and pastel mints...yummy, loved that combination of salt & sweets.


"When April steps aside for May,
Like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten;
Fresh violets open every day:
To some new bird each hour we listen."
- Lucy Larcom

Have a good weekend,

Brenda

Happy May Day everyone. Thank you so much for the chart. I love it. May Day brings back great memories of a program I had in preschool when we danced around a May pole. That is only one of a few things that has stuck in my mine of preschool.
