a new designer

This past weekend was the first long weekend of the summer.  It's often referred to as the 24th of May, Victoria Day and/or the May long.  We had fabulous weather Thursday, Friday and Saturday then Mother Nature turned nasty with plummeting temperatures, strong winds, rain, and ice pellets or snow.  We didn't get the snow but got to use our wood stove.  Then on Monday the sun came out and we're having splendid weather.

I recently discovered a new x-stitch designer - new to me - Durene Jones.  I love her designs - they're whimsical and colourful.  I've only stitched one so far but it was such fun to stitch!! You'll find her on facebook -  google Durene Jones and her facebook page will come up which is where you'll find some of her designs  ... I couldn't make my link thingee work. :(



 I haven't decided how I'm going to finish this one - any suggestions?

We have very warm weather here, too warm...30 Celsius! I like sunshine but this is too hot for me...

That's a fun design! I've seen Durene's charts in World of Cross Stitching magazine. She has a wide range of diverse designs.

Oh, such a colourful little finish. My first choice for finishing would always be a little pillow, I just loev them. And you could play with fabrics and ribbons.
