Just using what I've got~~!


Well.....as you can see, I am a little Blackbird crazy right now....And, when Becky SC posed a question to me about Joyeux Noel, I pulled out my book and my mind got to wandering....Which led me to ponder a little more about another chart in that book called 'Tis The Season.... And I have to say things took off from there~~~ Once I found this piece of muted light gray Lugana that has been in my stash for quite some time, I knew I HAD to pull threads to see if I could kit this bad boy on up.. Ended up I had all the flosses except the pale red and the greens...BUT, I immediately went to my Victorian Motto Sampler threads (I buy on ebay~) and there they were~~ Just waiting for me to get started...... So, here is what I have done so far.....The bird really will be pretty once the other half of her is done....
Well, back to the craft room for me....Hope everyone is home blissfully stitching away~~ Faye

A beautiful project! There is just something so pretty about a stitched bird. Must be the day for Christmas stitching. I've been working on a LHN ornament.
