I usually say “new month, new pattern,” but this time we’ve got 3 colorways for you to choose from. Pick whichever is your favorite and happy stitching!

This rainy season has been wild, even in Georgia. But honestly, do we expect anything less from 2022? The cross stitch patterns I’ve created the last few months have been cookies, birds, and a bear. The start of spring felt like the right time to bring in something …splashy. A recently rainfall inspired me to create a little extra sweetness this month for you. Instead of the standard one-color option, you’ll have fun 3 colorways to choose from. Which option is your favorite?


If you’re new to cross stitch or it’s been a little while since you’ve picked up a hoop, here’s my simple beginner guide for how to cross stitch. I have plans to create a lengthier instructional course for my membership program (setting a date for that launch very soon!), so this should at least get you started!

If you’re an existing subscriber, all you need to do to grab the pattern below is to head to the Cross Stitch Library and enter the library password (quick reminder: check your email! I’ve gotten a few replies from folks lately not realizing that the password they’re requesting is in the email they’re replying to, so be sure to read it! The FAQ section also helps troubleshoot if you’re having download issues). Now, onto this month’s pattern!

About this April Showers Cross Stitch Pattern

  1. I think this is one of my favorites. I can see this stitched onto a sweatshirt or a pocket. I really like this one so sweet. Thank you.
