Blackbird Designs...a finish!

This is my latest finish - I love Blackbird designs and when I saw this after the Nashville Show I had to have it! I converted (and also changed) to Vikki Clayton silks and love the result! I also had a hard time finding the ground walnut shells for filling but am really pleased with the weight they add to the pincushion.

Thanks for looking!

Girls' Weekend Out

I am going to Pittsburgh and then on to Ohio to visit my daughter, her husband and my wonderful granddaughter tomorrow. My oldest DD gave my youngest DD tickets to see Britney Spears in Pittsburgh for Christmas last year and tomorrow is the day! Gramma has to go along to watch my darling granddaughter while they go to the concert - then on Saturday we are all going back to Ohio to my oldest DD's home for the weekend. It will be a quick trip but worth the long drive. No stitching pictures but soon...but I will leave you with a pic of my DGD!

My First Post!

This is all I have to do is figure out how to add pictures! I am a long-time stitcher - more than 30 years who only recently discovered the wonderful community on the internet for stitchers. I have learned more in the last year from Vikki Clayton's forums than in the previous 30 years. I have NO LNS so I order most of my supplies/stash from the internet....occasionally make a two hour trip to the closest shop only to be disappointed because they have nothing in the shop that they have on display so I wind up ordering it from the internet anyway!
