Last Finish For April 2010

Well, May Day is tomorrow, and I managed to put the final stitches in Summer Side in just moments ago. I used buttons in place of some of the stitching, but, I think it looks really good the way it is. I also used beads instead of French knots for the flowers, but then again, French knots are not my forte. :P


Anyhoo, on with the show! :)

What a great finish, I love the colors! I am glad I am not the only one that likes to use beads in place on French knots, as they are certainly not my forte either! lol
