Square 1

square 1

Sunshine:
  • The warmth that causes the earth to warm in Spring, and the seeds to sprout. 
  • The energy that allows plants to make their own food, which in turn allows us to obtain nourishment.
  • Heat for our atmosphere, that causes the winds to blow and the clouds to form and the rain to fall.
  • Comfort-giver to old-bones, dwellers in wintery climates, and cats...

Keeeute! I love how you stitched this! I'm so stuck with cross stitching it never even crosses my mind to color with thread using different stitching techniques! What a great square!
Blessings,
Debbie

I really like the way you changed colors in your sun.

I love your little sun...having been a teacher for eons, I always think bright yellow with spokes coming off of it. This one is precious. Hugs, Genie

Thanks for all of the compliments ladies!

It's been so long since I embroidered or cross-stitched that I wasn't sure I remembered how to do it! I guess it's like riding a bicycle... ;)
