Their Song

Ok here's another finish for 2015.  The same friend that loaned me Sunflower House was gracious enough to also loan me Their Song so my needles have been going fast and furious this month.  I found this vintage frame that I think it a perfect finishing touch for this beauty.

Sunflower House

I was lucky enough that a dear friend loaned me her chart so I could stitch this beauty.  It's been on my wish list for several years now and the secondary market prices had convinced me that the wish would never be realized.  It is seriously my favorite stitch and it's like saying one child is a favorite, it's just not right but after seeing the pictures see if you don't agree.

It is stitched on Millennium Blue 32count Zweigart using the Gentle Art flosses.  The colors just really pop on this fabric and I can't wait to get it framed.

Pink Hill Manor, My Valentine, many more

I have been a follower of the blog and admired everyone's work since the beginning but I never posted before.  I felt like my stitching didn't measure up to all the amazing stitchery that you guys post but I've finally gotten brave enough to share.  Here's my 2013 Blackbird Design finishes so far:

Pink Hill Manor using recommended floss but mystery linen. It is stitched for my sweet niece, Rachel Elizabeth Gay

Moonlight Visitor stitched to honor my Aunt Brenda Gay Holland using recommended thread and mystery 32 count fabric

Swan Lake to honor my youngest niece, Josilyn Renae Gay aka Josi.  It was stitched using the recommended floss but again mystery 32 count fabric.

My Valentine still waiting for "honoring" and stitched on 30 count with recommended floss

Bluebird's Message using recommended floss and 28 count fabric

And To All A Good Night using recommended floss and 30 count fabric

I'm currently working on Happy Birthday and hope to add it to the completed pile later this month. Can't promise that because I'm leaving on Wednesday to head back home  to Atlanta for a visit so might not get too much stitching done for awhile.

Easter Parade

With Easter coming up,  I thought it was nice to make something to do with Easter embroideries.
What would be nicer then to decorate an Easter Hare.

Edinburgh 35ct dyed by myself in soft lila/pink color.
The silk colors are my one choice

                                                   HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
