Crafty Sheep’s May Color Challenge

Crafty Sheep is giving a color challenge each month for any type of craft. I wanted to practice a few embroidery stitches and found this fabric in my stash that matched perfectly. This was my first time embroidering on the print of a fabric. It was easy, fun and I love the colors. 
Check out Crafty Sheep’s blog for June’s color challenge and join us this month.
