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!

Yep, the school grind has started again. Did you get that ticket while picking up the kids?? Ugh, so sorry, Sharon!

Vonna said...

A beautiful WIP!

Oh no a speeding ticket AND a possible pink-eye in one day. It sounds like my husband's morning this morning. Our freezer is going out so we lost a whole bunch of frozed foods and then on his way in to work a deer ran into him. He couldn't get out of the drivers side door...had to crawl over to the passenger side. If you saw his work car you'd laugh...it's awful! LOL! It's like a deer magnet.

Your Spring Fling is gorgeous! Love the colors!

Our school starts tomorrow, but my daughter's college doesn't start for another couple of weeks. So no real routine yet for me!

Spring Fling looks beautiful! Don't you love the colors? I have a small piece of this linen so I know what a beautiful shade of green this is. I can't wait to see your framed pieces!
