Down Virginia Way along with a Sarah Tobias stitch

Greetings friends......


I'm so glad to be home!!~~ After four days at our annual conference, alot of us will returning to work tomorrow better prepared to enrich and educate the children in our classrooms....it's always fun to go, but comforting to arrive back home!!

I did want to share a couple stitched finishes from last week... Threadwork Primitives sure did design a winner in "Down Virginia Way".... Stitched on 40 count vintage Exempler linen with specified overdyes....

Here is a close up of the darling flower....

...And, I recently stitched the pin pillow in the Sarah Tobias book by Blackbird Designs on a piece of country mocha 25 ct.... I've been in a "blues with browns" frame of mind lately...... so I switched up the gold in Sarah's flowers and made them blue using GAST Mountain Mist.... I love that shade of blue....

... I think they will be finished as a set.... Don't you agree?.

Oh Faye, I don't know how I missed this latest post. I must take my head out of my stitching :) They do look so sweet together and I love the color changes you did on the BBD pins and tulips piece. I adore that design. One of my favorites from them. Thanks for stitching Down Va Way and I just can't wait to see these finished. Smiles,~Nan

Anne said...

Love your finishes Faye! Blues and browns are where it's at!! I have that Sarah Tobias piece and have thought of substituting the yellow for blue since I lean more towards blues. Your version is perfect!

Definitely finish these as a set! They're beautiful. I haven't seen either project before and love them both.
