Getting ready for Easter


Lambs are a symbol of Easter, right? But not these little dudettes! This week I'll be featuring some of my Easter designs--the traditional, as well as a bit off-the-wall like this one.

I love the sentiment expressed in this design--I'm the little lamb second from the right! It was stitched completely in DMC cotton floss and perle cotton, with gobelin stitches, Nobuko, French knots, a few satin stitches and basketweave. Simple to stitch, but wild with color!
