14 and 15!
I finished the Monthly Minis for April and this makes numbers 14 and 15 projects done in 2014! I think all of the projects I've finished so far this year have been SMALL! I need to finish something BIG! But finishing is good, small or large :)
My daughter's husband got her a ladybug kite recently, so the ladybug kite wall hanging is for her. These were a bit of a challenge this month! Tiny appliqué pieces! You will notice I tried a couple of different ideas and I think both turned out OK. The blue and orange kite tails are appliquéd. They were tiny and difficult to do but they look fine.
I decided to make the kite tails on the red and green kite more dimensional and they turned out cute too! So both ways worked, which was great, because I didn't want to have to do either one of them over....
The embroidery embellishments finished them both up nicely!
I hope you all are having a wonderful Easter! It's sure a beautiful day here :)
