Memorial Day Stitching

First off, Happy Memorial Day to everyone. I personally would like to thank all those selfless men and women who serve our country not just today but everyday. I wish they all be home this day! It's been a lazy Memorial day for me, I spent it stitching on this piece-Bluebird's Message by Blackbird Designs. I love the colors in this one-though I never really paid attention to it until I saw it stitched and framed at my LNS Needle Delights .

Have you ever had that happen? Never paid attention to a pattern until you saw it stitched up and then all of a sudden you had to stitch it? Anyway, I am enjoying it. I am stitching it on the recommended 30 count French Vanilla with Week's threads. I am pleased with my progress since I had a major snafu last week and had to take that entire bird out and it was no fun! I could have just cried, but alas I prevailed-LOL

I also started on The Mercantile by LHN and I am enjoying that, though there is not much to see just yet. I will post a picture of it soon. I always have really good intentions of updating my blog, but then time gets away from me. You all know how that is! Anyway, back to stitching. Thanks as always for stopping by!
