Woodland sampler :: May

Working on my woodland sampler is becoming a favourite ritual for the first weekend of the month.

I look forward to it all week, and it's lovely to spend an an afternoon and evening (or two) curled up in front of the TV with a cup of tea and my stitching - especially now we're getting into the cooler part of the year =)

I can't say enough how much I am enjoying this project - Amanda and Ashleigh at the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery have done an amazing job designing each month's cute design, and they are just the right size to keep you stitching for a little while, but not so long that you don't feel like you're making progress.

It is also exciting to see what each month's design will be - the girls share some sneak peeks throughout the month and have everyone guessing. This month is a gnome and sprouts. I'm nearly done with his hat, and am loving the combination of red green and yellow on my oatmealy coloured even weave (which, by the way, is AMAZING to work with).


If you're interested in stitching up your own woodland sampler the pattern, along with a bunch of other lovelies, is available from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery here.
