When I was in JoAnn Fabrics the other day, I couldn't resist those darn little easter chicks for easter baskets. Every year they become cuter and cuter. Always brings back memories of when I was a kid. I used to love getting those little chicks.
So naturally I had to stitch one for the stitch along. This little guy was needle punched with one strand of Weeks hand dyed embroidery thread. I love the fluffiness of this little chick.
Everything seems so fresh outside and the birds are busy building nests. I love this time of year. Our temps could get in the high 70's later this week, so hopefully, I will be able to get some interesting pics of our outdoor friends.
Did a little stitching over the weekend, more to come for the stitch along.
There is a lot of fun going on at inspire co. It is called 39 squares and Amy has even set up a blog for this fun project.
This is how she describes this fun stitch along....."To celebrate my birthday this month, I'm going to do a grid-style sampler with a square for each of my 39 years. I will do a square per day starting March 1 until April 8 and will post the squares here."
An inch a day is doable and the inspiration from the participants is very inspiring. Caution.... it is very contagious. My birthday sampler will have quite a few more squares than 39, but they are only an inch so I think I can handle this.
