April Greetings From Finland!

Hello all my SAL friends!

I have seen many BeaUTiFuL and impressive wall hangings during this month at our blog!
Today
I'm happy to show you my version of Bon Noel ;o)

Here is those three stitchery patterns, which I chose.
And yes ;o) I made few changes - again!!!
My birdies welcome Bon Noel sitting in their Christmas tree. Maybe they are right now decorating it?!?

An angel has an appliqued star in her hands. And I used - as many of us - more color in stitcheries: different kind of reds, yellows greens and grays...

When I thought of the fabrics I noticed that this pattern is 5" x 5" charm friendly.
You'll need only 8 charm pieces for this top.
 Isn't it nice?
I used fabrics of Basic Grey's 'Blitzen' collection.


I hope you all enjoy this project as much as I did...
now toward May! 
Can you believe May is soon here? It's horrific how time flies...

wishing you a creative stitching time
- Satu -

Lovely to see your variation to the pattern - very clever birds if they can decorate as well.
