Etsy NEAT Team Challenge -March

I've been anxiously awaiting the day that I could post all my photos of this month's Etsy team challenge. It's finally here!! As the winner of the last challenge I was able to pick the theme. I picked  "The Garden", which I thought would be perfect for spring.

Here's my entry for the challenge and my newest pattern for the shop:

 Garden Sign

 Here are a few close-ups:

Carrots are good for your eyes

An apple a day keeps the doctor away..

Sugar snap peas are my fav!

Leafy letters

Birds are always welcome in my garden!

I stitched the letters using Sublime Stitching's new floss. This particular color is called 'Eyeliner' and is available in the '

Portrait' floss pack

. It's my new favorite color!  It isn't quite black, or grey. It isn't quite purple, but it has a charcoaly-purple cast to it.  At the moment they don't sell the colors individually, but I'm hoping they will soon.

I framed the finished piece to hang on the wall by our back door.  Here's a pic of what it looks like framed, which was much harder to capture than I imagined.

Weird angle for the photo to keep out the glare,  but I do like it framed!

The pattern will be available in the shop early next week. I hope you like it!
