April's Spring Ornament

For this month's ornament for the Ornament SAL I decided to go with another spring theme. I had a Prairie Schooler ornament all kitted up and ready to go. Then I spotted a free chart on Pinterest which led to Martine's blog, Broderie Passion and her lovely freebies. I couldn't resist this one! Sorry about the photo quality. I just couldn't seem to get enough light.


This free chart can be found here. I found several of Martine's charts that I'd like to stitch. I only started this ornament last Thursday, thinking that I had plenty of time to stitch it. It wasn't until Monday that I realized the finished ornament was to be posted on the 24th, not the 30th as I somehow seemed to think it was. Needless to say it was a mad scramble to get it completed in time for this posting. The final finishing isn't complete but I'll get to it in the near future.
Tomorrow's posting will have an update on my WIPocalypse progress so I hope you'll stop by again!
