Welcome to our 2022 Spring Stitch-A-Long! This 3-Part Series is a bold design in a chalkboard style, featuring a Spring quote (it doesn’t rhyme) with lots of pretty Spring motifs.
UPDATE: For anyone who wishes to use alternate wording for "Easter Eggs" (since Easter is in the Autumn in Australia, for example), there is now an additional chart that reads "bird nests" instead. This extra chart comes with the PDF.
The price is a one-time fee, which includes all 3 PDF charts. You will receive an email with each new release according to the schedule below:

Model was stitched on 14-ct Navy Blue Aida (Wichelt or Charlescraft). The design would also work on lighter fabrics, like pale blue, yellow, pink, purple, grey, taupe etc.
Please make sure to cut your fabric at least 3" larger than the design on each side, 6" in total to each side (so for the full design, use a fabric piece that is at least 17" x 20" for 14-ct or 15" x 18" for 16-ct).
We cheated a little bit, and used a pre-cut piece of Charlescraft 14ct Aida that was 15” x 18“ (leaving only 2” of extra fabric on each side, but it worked!)
Model is shown in 12” x 16” standard photo frame, in whitewash barn board finish.
A Stitching Shop (USA) has the threads & fabric available pre-bundled for you!!
