"instant d'ete"....a French gift...

Le Passe Compose has a winner in this mid-size french inspired design....

It was a fairly quick stitch although I have to admit, I stretched things out just because the Belle Soie silk thread was such a joy to use...  This will actually be a May gift to someone I cannot mention since they read my blog....But, in the next 2 weeks, I will be finishing this finish so stay tuned...

 Instant d'ete
Le Passe Compose
36 ct creme linen
Cranberry Belle Soie thread




My favorite motif is the little birdie at the base of the birdhouse...pecking seeds....

Tomorrow will be my May Giveaway drawing....so, you still have time to enter...(see previous post)...I have added a couple little goodies to the other items mentioned....  Thanks to all of you who have entered... Your comments have meant so much to me!~~

Until tomorrow's drawing.....

Happy Stitching,

Faye
