May Day!

Petunia Penguin and I wanted to wish you a Happy May Day! Here on the Cape, flowers are taking their good sweet time to pop. Hopefully, by the end of this month, my perennial garden will be as lush as Petunia's!

As with all of my penguins, Petunia's body was stitched with black Petite Very Velvet and "Snow" Felicity's Garden. Her picket fence was worked in gobelin stitches with DMC #5 perle cotton, and her flowers are satin stitches in vibrant shades of Silk & Ivory. Her edger blade and watering can are courtesy of Kreinik #12 tapestry braid.

And to all you stitching lawyers out there, Happy Law Day!

That is too cute, like all your penguins.

Thank you, Anne. I spent all last night at Ask-A-Lawyer answering questions from the public. It's a public service the Bar Association puts on every year and I love doing it!

Hi Anne,

Too cute!

Here in Windy Meadow the daffodils are done and we're waiting for the next phase of flowers. Thank goodness we finally have green leaves on the trees! :-)

The entire design is so inviting, the flowers fun and colorful and, of course, the penquin speaks for herself! :) Very cute piece.
