I have never been big on Easter stitching. I couldn't tell you why, really. I celebrate Easter, and I like Spring. But Easter stitching has never floated my boat; in fact, I have only done a few Easter-themed pieces in the past, and Easter patterns never excite me the way Halloween and Christmas ones do.
A recent finish, however, is making me change my mind.

How cute is that?!?!?!
Maybe it was those cute little chickies, or perhaps it was the basket of colorful eggs that melted my heart and made me look at Easter stitching differently.
Whatever the reason, I am glad to have stitched this as a shop model for my LNS. This project stitched up quickly--it's a bitty thing at only 3.5 by 2.75 inches--and used such fun colors.
Look at the sweet little pink button in the corner of the design. Maybe that's what won me over.
Or maybe it was the little beads in the centers of the flowers.
Nah, it had to be the cute border of carrots along the bottom!
Whatever it was, I am glad that Easter stitching no longer fills me with dread and dissatisfaction. (Ha, I am being a bit dramatic.) With a design this sweet, how could I be anything but happy?
