It's Spring and the whole town has turned out to cheer for their teams at the first baseball game of the season. The wooden stands are packed and there are children in wagons and on the fences -- even the dog is in the outfield ready to catch one of the balls on the fly! Can't you just smell the peanuts, popcorn and the hot dogs? Yummmm! It's time to play ball!

The Just Another Button Company buttons that garnish are *everywhere* in here... striped stars, the baseball, and all those little triangle flags -- those are buttons!

Praiseworthy Stitches has a new 'Down the Lane' design -- this one is a seashore scene in the Winter -- NOT the Summer! For a change, we have evergreens, and snow covered hills, a snowman in the yard, but still the blue waves and an incoming ship. We never see winter seaside scenes, so this one is different and really fun. A celebration to the first snow of the season.

Stitch it on a nice mangy gray linen to give it that dark winter sky. They've shaded the house a lot -- looks neat -- and there are lots of Eyelets and Smyrnas all over the place in here for texture. Offered as a chart, this finishes approx 8-1/2 x 19 on 32ct.
