A Little Stitchin' Start

Gentle Friends, so, I got it together to make a new start and pulled together a 3 part Blackbird Designs mystery sampler from 2011 - they are the Loose Feathers "Summer Autumn Winter."  I pulled a piece of 40 count vintage Pecan Butter, and some of the overdyed flosses and hers my start......

... it's not much but it's a start.  I have tons of the BBD charts and love stitching them!!

We also made a run out to a wholesale fabric warehouse here in the City to choose some upholstery fabric.  We have needed to have a couple of pieces of furniture reupholstered for years and have finally made the jump to "get er' done"!!  I replaced our sofa a couple of weeks ago - that sucker has needed replacing for a long time, and now it's on to the other pieces in the living room!!  

I'll tackle the dining room chairs once I get the newly upholstered pieces back....  the dining room chairs are slip seats so I can do that myself.  We'll also be painting - hopefully - while the furniture is out getting done.  Just trying to get the house in shape for the Holidays..... which are fast approaching!!

... and that's about it for today sports fans, again thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Good Thoughts1  Good Words!  Good Deeds!!


  1. Your new stitching is very pretty. Ahh, the joys of redecorating. We don't need to replace our furniture, but our carpeting is in need of replacing. Just have to get on with it. I always like doing dining room chairs myself also.

  2. Your start has such a pretty border. Good luck with all the home projects. Things should be lovely by the holidays!

  3. Lovely start, Edgar! Love the colors especially what you are using for the letters.

  4. I am so jealous that you have these charts! I hope it is as enjoyable and beautiful to stitch as it looks. x

  5. Dearest Edagar: Beautiful start on your Blackbird Design.
    I love the idea redoing furniture, you get to pick your own fabric.
    I am looking forward to seeing them finished I hope you share with us.


  6. Edgar, you are so lucky to have these charts! I should have snatched them up when they came out but wasn't 'into' them back then! A fabric, sounds like fun. Have a super Wednesday!

  7. Lovely start! I do hope you will show pictures of the reupholstered when they are done! Hope that all is well with you!
