Fair & Square and Birth Sampler Progress

Today, I received these wonderful squares from Darla on the Fair & Square exchange. This sweet, colorful design really perked me up after a long day at work! Darla also sent a long some fibers from Carrie's Threads and Six Strand Sweets which I will enjoy trying out someday soon. Thanks Darla!



On Saturday evening I finished filling in the banner and added the little bird to the left on the La D Da birth sampler. I'm finding it a bit difficult to read the words "I Love You" but I will reserve final judgement until I'm finished. It seems like when I have something dark behind this piece, then the words are okay. (I apologize for the wrinkles!)


Not much else to report on. We've had a nasty cold bug working its way through our house and I think I'm next in line....

The birth sampler is coming along beautifully - I just love La de da designs. I've got plans to work on some of them this year.

Cathy, it was you that got me stitching on my LHNs last year so I believe I will work hard on my Thread Gathering till I am able to return the complement!! (just referring to your comment on my blog)

Stay away from the cold bug!!!

Your birth sampler looks great so far. And your FS squares are really lovely colors - good job, Darla!

Your squares are gorgeous! Love them. Your birth sampler is coming along nicely-though I am with you-I have a litle trouble seeing the words.

Wow beautiful F&S those purples are awesome!

Hmmm I'd be tempted to change the colours for the words..

Sonda in OR said...

Very nice squares! I agree with others, the words are a little hard to read from my view, but a pic is never the most reliable judge. Regardless, that's good progress!

Lelia said...

lovely f&s blocks! Your La-D-Da is very nice. Not sure I have any suggestions for the wording.

Please take care of yourself. Those nasty colds can hang on too long.
