Spring Fling WIP

Here is Spring Fling by Blackbird Designs. It's a Loose Feather's from 2005, I can't remember which number. It's being done on 30 count Glen Ellyn linen with the recommended threads. Glen Ellyn is also the recommended fabric. This picture is a little washed out but it's a really pretty green. It's been a real pleasure to stitch this one so far. I am hoping for a finish soon.

Well, the kids are back in school and the grind starts all over again. Hoping for a good year. I have also been getting some finished pieces framed. Will show you those soon. Anyway, not much going on here, though I did manage to get a speeding ticket today. No fun, that just cuts into the stash buying! Off now to the urgent care with baby girl who I think has pink eye-meh! Have a great week!

Bluebird's Message Finish

I finally completed Bluebird's Message by Blackbird Designs after dragging my feet over eyelet stitches. It was stitched on 30 count French Vanilla using Week's threads. I love the colors in this one. My sampler wall is slowly taking shape. Though I am working on it, I still don't have a lot to show on Spring Fling-so when I get more I will show it to you. I love, love the colors in it as well.

Life otherwise has been very busy painting the house and school shopping with the kids of which I am still not quite finished yet. The joys of shopping with teenagers is just indescribable-NOT! Anyway, only a couple more weeks till school starts and my poor refrigerator will breathe a sigh of relief-LOL Anyway, have a wonderful week!
