I've never really had much interest in stitching - but for some reason, the urge hit me right around the Christmas holiday, and I found so many cute patterns online that I decided to dive in.
This Easter stitching is one of the first ones I've ever done and I LOVE it. The pattern is a free download from Twin Stitchers on You Can Make This (an incredible crafty website!).

The frame is a quick crafty project too. I had a stack of these wooden frames I had purchased from the Target $1 section a few years ago (gotta love that Target $1 section) and I painted one in a turquoise acrylic craft paint, then gave a couple of coats of Modge-Podge for shine and seal and roughed up the edges a bit with some sandpaper.
I layered a sheet of polka-dot pattern scrapbook paper over top of white cardstock for the background. Then I just glued the finished stitching to the paper. Quick and easy!
