Theme-A-Licious April Showers

The theme for last month was April Showers, "What pieces can you find in your flood of WIPs that include water? Rivers, lakes, oceans, or rain (and anything that lies within)."  I was thrilled that Heather of It's Geek to Me used my theme suggestion and will send me a prize!

I had a lot of WIPs with water to choose from, but I only managed to stitch on one of them!  I finished the elephant and stitched a row of waves on Christmas Ark by The Prairie Schooler.
Christmas Ark update #3
I also started and finished this cute little Winter Witch freebie from The Snowflower Diaries for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL but she has "frozen water" snowflakes so this one can count, too!

The theme for this month is Menagerie May, "Is it a zoo in your stack of WIPs? How many projects can you find that include animals or birds?"

I have lots of those!  My WIPs with animals are Universal Unity, Bird Nest (No 2), Santa's 12 Days of Christmas, Gallinas, Gatitos, Thankful Critters, The 12 Days of Christmas, Boo! Club, Eeyore & Butterfly, Dance of the Geckos, Christmas Sampler, Feeding the Rabbits, Leo, Very Scary Mystery Sampler, Easter Hang-Up, Picnic Area, Fall Welcome, Halloween Happiness, Christmas Ark, Majestic Eagle, Shiver Me Timbers, All Hallows Eve, Circle of Songbirds, Black Cat Alphabet, Bear, We're Off to See the Wizard, Rudolph Wreath, Hungarian Peacock Sampler, Snow Bear and Sleigh, Nesting Season, Wolf, The Wizard of Oz, Cats in Hats - Samantha, October Witch Snowlady, Trick or Treat Greeting, Penguins at Play, and Heaven and Nature Sampler.

Hopefully I'll find time to stitch on some of these during May and post updates on June 1.  Happy Stitching, everyone!

Wow Debbie! You have the funnest wips. Love Christmas Ark - great progress. Winter Witch looks amazing on the fabric you used. Is the color called Lime? Love it. I wouldn't have thought to use it for Christmas designs. Congrats having your theme selected by Heather!
love Annette

I heard that we have you to blame for the theme in April! Heather was pleased that I used Tears (of joy) as part of my theme because she didn't want anyone to be sad stitching!

The winter witch looks so great on the green fabric.

I love your projects for this month. But goodness, how well you choose which ones to work on for May??? That's quite a list (mine is probably of a similar size!!) The last piece of your prize FINALLY came in this week, so it will be on the mail soon!

Great choices for the SAL. Love the Winter Witch and I agree with on that it matches cause the frozen water.
