Etsy NEAT Team Challenge -March

I've been anxiously awaiting the day that I could post all my photos of this month's Etsy team challenge. It's finally here!! As the winner of the last challenge I was able to pick the theme. I picked  "The Garden", which I thought would be perfect for spring.


Here's my entry for the challenge and my newest pattern for the shop:

 Garden Sign


 Here are a few close-ups:

Carrots are good for your eyes

An apple a day keeps the doctor away..

Sugar snap peas are my fav!

Leafy letters

Birds are always welcome in my garden!


I stitched the letters using Sublime Stitching's new floss. This particular color is called 'Eyeliner' and is available in the 'Portrait' floss pack. It's my new favorite color!  It isn't quite black, or grey. It isn't quite purple, but it has a charcoaly-purple cast to it.  At the moment they don't sell the colors individually, but I'm hoping they will soon.

I framed the finished piece to hang on the wall by our back door.  Here's a pic of what it looks like framed, which was much harder to capture than I imagined.

Weird angle for the photo to keep out the glare,  but I do like it framed!


The pattern will be available in the shop early next week. I hope you like it!
