Cute April project

I thought this wallhanging would take much longer to do, but with the stitcheries traced out and sitting by my chair for night time stitching they were finished quite quickly.  The assembly takes just a short time once the little pieces are cut out, resulting in an early finish this month.  The most difficult part was finding enough red fabrics to add the borders.  I could have used a different colour but decided early on to go with the red look.

I have added a little colour to each of the stitcheries to add interest.
