This is the One Day Challenge, only for this purpose, it is a challenge to be done in a one month period. For the month of April, the theme was,
" Something that reminded you of April or, seeing Easter fell in April this year, an Easter theme."
I planned to do a small cross stitch piece, which had been in my stash for about 10 years. I had made a working copy, done the grid work on the linen & chosen some of the threads. Somewhere in those ten years, the preparation was separated from the chart. I couldn't find the chart nor remember the name of the designer, what the coloured chart looked like or, who/where the chart came from . Lesson here, is to make a note when you purchase a chart & keep the details in a secure spot. Needless to say I abandoned that project, yet again. Let's hope the chart turns up sometime soon, as in a previous situation, with another chart & threads..
My stitched piece for this occasion is another of my blocks from The Splendid Sampler, quilt project from Pat Sloan & Jane Davidson, a fellow Australian. This is a wonderful online quilting escapade, which lasted one year, from February 2016 to February this year, for participants who joined for the first round of this project. The project is continuing for the next round, a slightly different format with the release of The Splendid Sampler Book.
Here is my wee block project for April.
