'You're my Sunshine' Embroidery Hoop Art

'Rainy Days' Project ~ Sewing World Magazine

April's issue of Sewing World Magazine is in the shops now and it's packed full of Easter and Spring makes to sew, including my little appliqued embroidery hoop picture.

I love Spring and at this time of the year, here in the UK, we often feel like we experience all four seasons in one day!  As the skies open it's good to remind ourselves that 'April showers bring May flowers', just as some people always brighten our gloomy days!  

I stitched up the hoop for my big sister who has a birthday later this month, as I know she really is the 'Sunshine on a rainy day' for lots of different people!

The magazine has a total of ten spring projects just waiting to be stitched, including these;   

 Happy Easter!
