I’d say it’s about tulip time

Stubborn Chicago weather disagrees. My daffodils still haven’t even started blooming. Luckily here are some tulips to tide me over a few more weeks. The Tulip Fairy Stitchette is up in the shop now.

Tulips or not, I’m taking my embroidery to the park today. I think we may have finally hit crafting outdoors temps!

    how very lovely!
    Minnesota weather is just about as disappointing as Chicago weather right now.
    Last thursday we had thunder, lightning and snow all at once.

    Oh, payday is almost here and then I can buy this stitchette YAY!!! I love it! I need it since my pretty budding tulips were COVERED WITH SNOW today. Spring can be such a tease!

    Another beautiful design! Will you include the embroidery thread colours in your instructions though? This is an important part of design as you have such a good sense for colour but I noticed you don’t list them on your spring/summer/autumn/winter stitchettes – which is such a shame.

    Too cute–order mine already! Summer stitchettes sound great too–picnic idea…sounds good. A picnic quilt/blanket would be fun to stitch up if you ask me (hint, hint) and of course a pitcher of lemonade… 🙂

    Hmmm, our daffodils are blooming here in Wheaton…of course, we only have three. They look a little lonely! Love the new stitchettes!
