May Seasonal Shelf Redone

The May shelf is finally looking like what I had pictured in my head. Thank you to everyone for their suggestions on what I could do to make it what I wanted. I move things around a bit, added some Ivy for background and built the fence.

If you click on the photo you can see the cute buttons I added to the fence. I won these in a give away from Shelley in my ILCS group and they arrived in the mail today and I thought they were a great addition to the fence. You will see more of these adorable buttons on my stitching in the coming months.
Right now I'm stitching like a demon on a new project for a Hardanger Class I'm going to teach for my ILCS group. It's really a very simple design but I think it's going to be a great project for a introduction to Hardanger. I also have made a little more progress on the "grow!" Pincushion and may get it finished this weekend.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. We are under a Heat Advisory for Sunday since the temps are going over the century mark for this first time this year. It will be about 15 degrees above the normal for this time of year and you know where you will find me. That's right, inside with the A/C on watching NASCAR and stitching to my heart content.
Until Next Time....Have a Great Weekend with lots of good stitching.

That shelf turned out beautiful Rene. You did a marvelous job...as usual. The fence and the leaves make such a difference and those buttons are too cute. Will chear on your hardanger class from the sideline. It will be a great class and I bet you will create heaps of new fans for hardanger.

your shelf looks wonderful as always. Funny to think of a/c - it's raining and cold here today! Actually, I don't like it TOO hot, so I'm not complaining.

This would be an imitation of my youngest dd...."You always want me to work on the nativity! I NEVER get to have any fun!"

Your proddings always make me chuckle. Encouragement is always appreciated. :)
