April Color Challenge

Crafty Sheep has an April Color Challenge for needle-workers. She chose the color palette from Design Seeds  ( and gave the palette as the only guideline with a finished date being the end of the month. I really like having set guidelines, even one this simple, when working on a project. I am definitely a list-making organizer, even in my creativity, so this challenge suits me and gives me a goal for the next couple of weeks.

I went to my thread boxes, after printing the color palette, and was able to get very close to the design colors. I then chose a free embroidery pattern that I had pinned a while back from Needle 'n Thread ( I have a specific completed project in mind, one I have not made before. 

If you are interested in joining the April Color Challenge, go visit Alexis at and leave her a comment letting her know. I can't wait to see what others come up with. 

My threads are all DMC colors with the numbers listed in the corner.


  1. That design is so pretty! I think it'll look great in those colors. So happy that you're participating!

  2. Ohhh! I saw this on crafty sheep today. I adore those colors. I might have to jump in and have some fun too :).


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each & every one.
