More Framing

Before attending the BBD Spring Fling retreat, I had some of my BBD finishes framed. I wanted to include them in the "show and tell" display. As it turned out, I only took two of them with, but I will share all three of them with you here.



Quaker Garden
Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers #19
Recommended linen and fibers



Special Delivery
Blackbird Designs
GAST fibers
32 ct Lakeside Linen Strawflower


Evergreen
Blackbird Designs - Loose Feathers #17
GAST & WDW fibers
30 ct R&R Iced Cappuccino


Finally, some answers to your questions --


Margaret asked why there was no house in the 4th Anniversaries of the Heart block. Don't worry, there will be; the house just hadn't been stitched yet on the piece that Alma shared with us.


Kim asked why there was a big gap between blocks 2 and 3. There are going to be some bonus charts later this year and one of the bonus charts will go in that spot.


One last photo before I go...here's a close up of the sachet that I stitched.



Hope you had a nice weekend! I'm off to my stitching chair now...

I have been so jealous reading about your stitching weekend with the Blackbird gals, as they are my favorite designers. And just yesterday I got a notice in the mail from Old Mill Stitchery in Liberty, MO. They are having a day with them near the end of June. So I am signed up and my sweet husband will drive me there (with a stop in Columbia to visit our alma mater and eat some delicious Shakespeare's Pizza.) I can't wait. I hope the project is as neat as your was (although I love all of their designs, so it shouldn't be a problem.) By the way, I think you did a fabulous job with it.

Lynn said...

Your sachet is so sweet. What have you filled it with?
All of your framed pieces are lovely. I wish I had the time to stitch more of their designs. I just keep adding the charts to my stash until that time comes.
