Just a quick one project post, I stitched this design a few years ago from Helen Philipps' book, The New Cross Stitch Sampler Book. When looking through my fabric stash, I noticed that this one had all the same colors as the stitched piece does, so decided that it would be perfect for making a purse. It hasn't been very spring like around here yet, but these colors cheer me up every time I see them. I love the birds on the fabric!
I used DMC threads throughout, and DMC Color Variations for the checkered border and the house and a DMC variegated green for the verse.
Our primroses have only pushed up some itty bitty leaves so far and the daisies are a long way off, but at least I have this as a reminder that they are on their way! Thanks so much for stopping by!
