SAL: Wildflower Update

Here we are again with an update on progress for our SAL projects. I have been working on Wildflower Jar a design by Maureen McCarthy for Janlynn needlecraft.

At our last posting I made some good progress getting the jar started.

Here is where I am now

It’s almost as lovely as the real thing. Enjoying every moment with this cross stitch and every moment of spring.

    Thank you πŸ™‚ I love the pansies and violas too. I like to use them like a ground cover. They add so much beautiful color.

      I thought the shading on this was lovely too. I have made a few counting errors actually but left them in and decided to move on. They didn’t seem to affect the over all look.

      Oh no snow go away and let spring blossom… we have had those late April snows too over the years. Always a surprise! Thankfully they are usually short lived.
