Peter and Friends

I finished Peter and Peep by With thy Needle & Thread today! I love everything that Brenda Gervais designs and this pattern was no exception.

Don't you just love that look in Peter's eye, his whiskers, and that darling little chick surround by  letters ??? 

The cart that he's pulling with the chick is too cute!!!

Originally, I had planned on having it finished as a pillow, but those tulips reminded me of another of Brenda's pieces that I had stitched:

So off I went to my LNS,  The Inspired Needle, where Cathy helped me select a frame that would compliment my other piece.

This is what we decided on:

I think they'll look great hanging next to each other!!! BTW, I stitch Peter and Peep on 36 count R&R French Vanilla linen with the called for fibers. I would however, if I thought about it at the time, have stitched Peter with a wool fiber. I think the texture would have really looked cool.

In closing, I like to show you my April Word Play by none other than Brenda Gervais!!!

Hope everyone is having a great Spring!
