For April, Hope is the sentiment as tulips and daffodils rise and bunnies play!
Three ways to stitch-- in-the-hoop mug rug, postcard, or quilt block versions-- or buy the monthly collection at a discount.
Set includes a lavishly detailed design in 16 ct., (5" x 7" stitch out), and 14 ct., (5-1/8" x 8" stitch out.) These mug rugs are all-in-the-hoop designs and do not need quilting, for easier than ever results. Complete photo instructions included-- back is made of a coordinating novelty print. Frame as a cross stitch design, add a hanging ribbon and change out each month as a wall display, or add quilt blocks and novelty winter prints to make a table runner. In addition, the design may be used as an applique to add borders, or for a place mat or other larger project as shown.
Stitch up this tiny treasure each month, then make someone’s day be sending it as a postcard, or in an envelope. The Cottage Postcard design is a truly a tiny treasure with 18ct cross stitches! Finished size is 4-1/2”x 6-1/4.” The design includes full color photo instructions to make the postcard and postcard back shown. Approved to stamp and mail by the USPS as is—or use the template provided to make a custom envelope. Add a little hanging ribbon and just display your cute post card at home... write down a favorite saying, some short thoughts, or record the highlights of your month on the back of your card, then make a tiny, collectible album out of all twelve postcards when they are finished-- a fiber artist's or journaling memento of 2020!.
The same design in a square format, to open up more inspiration! Stitch up these lovely, perfect cross stitch treasures as a quilt square each month, then use each in a project of your own inspiration or save all twelve to stitch together into a glorious wall hanging at the end of the year. The Cottage Quilt Block design is provided in 5”, 6”, 7” and 8” squares for your use. These designs are not quilted in the hoop. Add a couple of coordinating quilt blocks to make a table runner or wall quilt... add borders of a gorgeous novelty print and make a pillow... there's no limit to what you can make with these intricate and lovely squares.
