April Pinterest Challenge by the Pin chicks

This month gosh is it really the end of April its more like February here in Somerset,  this week we have had rain, wind,  snow, hail and sleet.  even today the sky came over black and down it came hail, sleet and snow all mixed in.  Roll on Spring or perhaps summer might get here first.
With the nasty flu bug I had I never thought I would even get started at one point but I did and here is my efforts for the month.
This month I have done some stitching on card and the patterns I found on Pinterest with this link.  Both pictures are free and there are some more designs on the link.
I used metallic thread for them both pictures and beads on the flowers,   The above one I am going to call "You are my sunshine"  I used gold thread and beads for the centre and variegated thread for the middle and pink for the outside with pink beads.  I hope you can see the beads better  on the close-up.

This is the other picture,  the picture is of a rose which I did in red thread and put silver beads on it brighten up because  the red which looked a bit mat,  even though it was metallic thread.
I hope you can see the beads on the picture.  I am putting the words "With Love" on this picture.
I did enjoy doing these pictures and at a later date I hope to frame both pictures.
I have no idea what the other ladies have done so please pop over and see there blogs  Carollyn,   Suzanne,   Muskaan

Imoshen seems to have already posted hers but here's a link to her blog

I hope you have a lovely weekend


  1. How beautiful and unusual too, I like the beads and can see them too. I love the rose design too. this pick was a good one and you all always surprise me :) Love your pick, little chick :)

  2. You've taken me back to my string art on paper days ! My sis & I went through an embroidery on greeting card phase - I still have the ones she made; mine were sent out .
    You've chosen beautiful patterns & done a great job; nice touch with those beads :-)

  3. they are beautiful darl... I don't know how you have the patience LOL xXx

  4. Hey Margaret, I just forgot to tell everyone that the little dress pattern, You made up, and to contact you, so I just added it in this morning, sorry, just updated it!

  5. I like these, Margaret! I've done some string art on cards, too, a few years ago. Yours are very pretty.

  6. Lovely! The beads are like raindrops on your rose.

  7. Omg these are beautiful, I love them. They are too good for cards Margaret, they need to be framed and hung on the wall where they can be admired. Well done, you haven't been well at all and still produce stunning beauties like this!!!

  8. How did I miss these? They are gorgeous Margaret. I will follow the link and save these if I can and have a go myself.
