My project for May is this cute little free stitchery pattern which Gail first showed on her blog page in 2012 when she was Aurifil's April designer of the month.
As I completed most of the embroidery while I was away from home, I decided that it would be easiest to use just one variegated thread to stitch the whole design. This meant I could just take one skein of thread rather than carry a number of different colours.
The thread I used was a hand dyed fine silk by Stef Francis.
I added a border made of scraps of Tilda fabrics and turned the embroidery into a mug rug. I added some cute little buttons on the border for fun!
