Summer Jubilee

Blackbird Designs 'Summer Jubilee'
28 count 18th Century Blackbird linen by R&R
Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works floss

OMG, I finished something! This was a work in progress for probably 5 years or more. the pattern can be found in their book 'Souvenirs of Summer'. It is also in Just Cross Stitch August 2003 issue.
Now I just have to decide which BBD to start next: Summer House, Snow Garden, Gathering Basket, Remember Me....

Spring Break

I might be able to finish something if I could focus on one project for at least a whole day! I've worked on all 4 of these projects this whole week, most days I stitch on more than one. That's what makes it fun I guess! :-)

Bluebird Reward of Merit

I finished it! This is Blackbird Designs 'Bluebird' reward of merit. It is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads 'dungarees' on mystery 28 ct. linen. Following the finishing instructions, I stuffed it with crushed walnut shells from the pet store. I really like a pincushion filled with it!
