Color Me Happy.....

From this.......


To this.....


Garden Glade stitched with design adaptation and floss conversions by Jean Lea, Attic Needlework.  I enjoyed EVERY SINGLE STITCH.




And what's not to love with all of those colorful animals, birds and flowers?  I may have completed this stitch about 10 days sooner but I have become simply enthralled with the Bald Eagle family in Decorah, Iowa.  If you haven't been joyfully sucked into this wonderful display of nature at it's finest, you are really missing a great opportunity.  (www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles)

That is quite wonderful--I have it in my stash, and now I've got to do it too (plus I have it needlepoint as well--jeez, maybe I should do it both ways?) Thanks for the enablement!

LOVE IT CARI!!!!!!!! - Funny thing - I have pulled mine back out too and really love working on it - however mine looks quite different from yours - I know I changed the red and also the fill color on the leaves - Can't wait to see her framed up. You give me incentive to keep mine in rotation. are you knitting any? I'm in a BIG slump
Hugs Mel

Oh Cari!!! It's wonderful! I am in love with it. I have that in my stash and really, really need to pull it out and work on it. Now that my A&E wall is near completion, I need to start on a "girl" wall and that would be the perfect piece to start with!!

I need to pull out this design and get busy. It is one of my favorite CHS designs. Congratulations on a beautiful finish.

Cute piece. I love it. The colors are wonderful. Hope you had a good Easter!!

JOLENE said...

So Stunning! Love the color changes and I wonder if you will send this one to Jill to "do her magic" on it? I super sized your photo and I can't help but see a pretty mill hill bead/treasure hanging around her neck....dancing in the sunshine....awaiting her prince charming.

Congrats, Cari, lovely work! Smiles...
