A quick update....Flowers of the Field.....

I am running on empty tonight!!! You know that tingley feeling you get in your sinuses when a head cold is coming on???? Well........That's me .....Felt it coming on all day and just had to push through my day until I got home..... So, tonights post on last nights finish will be brief...

Blackbird Designs has done it again with this quick stitch...I love the soft colors...Btw, if you are stitching both the Sewing bag and the pincushion as shown on the chart, be careful when using the Fool's Gold thread.....I only had a 4 inch piece of that color left and I had no frogging at all.... And, my Barrell Cactus was much greener than the pale flowers that are showing on the chart....But, I still like it.... Just an fyi......

Here is the sewing bag ....

Here is the pincushion.....

So, that's it for me...... I am hitting the sack!!!

I woke up this morning and had that same sinus thing along with a sore throat. It doesn't take much to catch something, I just have to visit the school and Voila, sore throat. I love you Blackbird finishes. Beautiful!! Hope you feel better soon!

Chris said...

Very pretty. I hope that the sinus thing doesn't develop into a full blown cold. Rest and take care of yourself.
