When we saw this cute new cross stitch pattern Singing in the Rain by Beverly McCullough of Riley Blake Designs we knew we wanted to stitch it!
Spring showers bring May flowers! This bright and happy cross stitch will have you singing in no time. Rainboots, umbrellas, florals, stripes and more will have your heart soaring!
From June 23 to August 18, Kimberly will be stitching along with Beverly McCullough of Flamingo Toes on her newest cross stitch pattern, Singing in the Rain.
This pattern has cool teals, lemon yellow and pops of pink that match Bev’s fabric collection by the same name.
