My blog, as I see it, will be mostly about my stitching (mostly hardanger, but some cross stitch too) and a little about what is going on in my life. And my cats, can't forget the cats!

Victoria Sampler's Spring Biscornu Contest - My entry
Once again, Victoria Sampler is having a Spring biscornu contest. Speaking of tulips, this one is full of them and other spring flowers, a real garden. I was so excited to see somethig springy, and had so many color ideas running through my head that I really had a hard time deciding on them. So I finally ended up using two color schemes, one for each side. The first one is a white linen background, with pinks and blues, and of course yellows to tie the two sides together. The other side is actually a pale yellow linen with yellow klosters and needleweaving. And the "garden" is of course the same colors as the first side. I'm not sure which side I like better. This was such a fun stitching project, and I really enjoyed it. Thanks to Thea for another great design, and for having another contest to challenge us all. To me, it doesn't matter who wins, it is just so interesting to see what everybody comes up with - such a creative bunch of stitchers!
I have four cats, or maybe I should say they own me! They keep me laughing. I am also addicted to doing hardanger embroidery, and also design some. Hope to soon be publishing my designs under the name It's A Stitch! Designs.
