Another Spring break finish~

Greetings friends......


In keeping with tradition and my love for all things red, I stitched the design Blackbird by Blackbird Designs while on my break from work this past week..... Yes, Blackbird became Redbird.... And, I omitted the border, along with stitching a small leaf vine under the tree....A simple leaf vine I made up by mimicking the leaves in the tree.... Simply said, I made it my own~

I thought the DMC 3777 on 36 count Buttercreme linen would be a nice combo.....


Using one thread over 2 made the design just enough pop.....


And I added a few newly made and very fragrant cinnamon pins....


Looking forward to returning to my craftroom tomorrow.... Picking up where I left off with finishing some of your fantastic stitches.... Thanks for your patience in allowing me the pause... I certainly was able to recharge~


Take time to enjoy the journey~


Always,


Faye

I love your finish with the gorgeous red thread change! I've never seen this pattern before. Is it in one of the larger Blackbird Designs' books?
