Edgar over at Blacksheep's Bit of the Web is having a drawing for his copy of the OOP book containing the pattern for "Lo" if you are interested you will find it here. Great chance for a beautiful pattern!
This is my version of Little House Needleworks - The Traveling Stitcher. While I loved their version I can't afford nor could I find their purse/folder to put my needlework on and since I decided to make it myself I decided to change it to blue. I am pretty satisfied with it - it's certainly not perfect but it's for me! The second picture shows the fabric and it's true color...I don't know why my pictures get so dark - they were taken at the same time and one is light and one is dark???? I used 32 ct confederate grey linen and Vikki Clayton silk fibers.
I get to see my daughter and her family late tomorrow night and over the weekend. My youngest daughter won a trip to see Britney Spears in Las Vegas and she is taking my oldest daughter with her! BUT my granddaughter is staying here for the weekend!
Here is my version of the Freebie from Blackbird Designs....I used 36 ct Lt. Expresso fabric, Vikki Clayton silks, and my Mother's name and birthdate. I am really happy with this little sampler, although not with my awful picture...sorry it's so dark. Thanks for looking!
I don't usually stitch cutesy things...I'm more of a primitive girl myself! But I'm going to stitch two more of these "cutesy" things for my granddaughter's room as soon as I get the charts. Please excuse the picture....I thought by putting it on my glasstop table outside I'd get more light but all I got was the table legs showing through! Oh well, maybe next time.
I really like all the smalls patterns they have in their latest books! This one is again on mystery fabric (36 ct) - I have a drawer full of mystery fabric - and I used VC silks.
I really do have several things started that aren't Blackbird Designs...but then again I have several other Blackbird Designs started too. I am working on a small picture for my granddaughter's room that is Country Cottage Needlework - Princess Parade.
60 year old retired from career but working at a less stressful job to survive. Wonderful husband of 38 years, 2 beautiful adult daughters and two amazing granddaughters! Can't forget my great son-in-law either! Love to cross-stitch but never enough time!
