The Simple Things



Well thanks to all your good vibes and encouragement I have completed The Simple Things by Blackbird designs. I love this design-however Le Frog really liked it too and I made many an error. Some corrected and some not so much. It is uniquely mine! I opted not to do the chain stitch and ended up back stitching which took me forever. One of those sweet little stars you see there took me three times to get right only because I didn't read the color code correctly.

I have been admiring many sampler walls-I thought this one would start me out. Of course, at the rate I am stitching perhaps I should put it up now and enjoy it now~LOL. I stitched Simple Things on the recommended fabric 30 count Marva's Blend by R & R Reproductions, using Week's and GAST threads. Now on to some ornament stitching. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week.

This is one of my favorite pieces by BBD! I have it on my pile to stitch....I think it would be the perfect premiere piece to your sampler wall! I have the same admiration of those walls

Super nice finish. I say hang it now and enjoy it. Then there's no way you can let it on the wall by itself, get stitching those samplers

Beautiful finish! I know what you mean about the frogs. I had a couple visit me recently so the little bit of stitching I had finished had to be taken out. Alls well that ends well as they say! lol
