Friday Flowers: Azaleas

Azaleas!  It's all about the azaleas this weekend of The Masters in Augusta!
I've been busy running errands, plus printing and mailing lots of my new 
SPRINGTIME WREATH pattern this week.... all in hopes of clearing my desk
and looking forward to a Masters Marathon, watching tv and stitching this weekend. 

But seeing those luscious pink flowers reminded me to pull out my AZALEA COLLAGE
and hang it in my hallway, to enjoy my stitched version of these elegant flowers.

Well, YUM,,, Love, love, love these springy pinks and greens!
What better way to enjoy these bright blooms than to stitch them so they never fade;
that's my way of thinking, anyway.
But for one of this weekend's projects, I'm gonna finish up my small "R is for Rabbit" piece,
from Prairie Schooler's Alphabet (oooh, and it's got  more pink & green, imagine that):
I'm stitching this 4" x 6" cross-stitch design on eggshell 18 ct. mono canvas, using 
4 ply of DMC floss in plain ol' Tent Stitch.  Easy peasy, really, and something
I find very tranquil to do in-between other large, complex projects.
I'm almost done.... so I'll certainly be hopping over to another project in my stack.
hope you have a restful and stitchful weekend, too!
