A Little Stitchin' Start

Gentle Friends, with Beatitudes in the bag... and soon to be in a frame, I needed to get a new project in the ole Q-snap...

... so I landed on "Little Birds" from Blackbird Designs.  BBD, as you might recall, is one of my favorite design teams and this super sampler is a winner on every level!!  I'm stitching it on the called for linen, but on 40ct and not 36ct as in the picture on the chart.  I also had 13 of the 14 called for flosses in my stash and for the 14th floss, CC Camouflage, which is unobtainable at the moment, I switched it out for WDW Collards, and think I'm even happier with the switch than I would have been stitching with the called for.  It's nice and largish being 395W x 339H so It'll keep my busy for a while.  Once again it's the border that really works for me these... the puffy pointed flowers a great!!

Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Good start... I like the colors.

  2. I bought that chart because I loved those border flowers. I am starting We Live In Hope by BBD. I will love watching yours grow. I seem to like doing a big design these days. I don't like all the starting and stopping that little designs require.

  3. Oh wow, that is a gorgeous sampler. I love the floss colors that you are using. I do love that border.

  4. Blackbird Designs has long been one of my very favorite go-to designers....I have several "in que" waiting to be stitched and I actually think this is among them. But, Barb, "We Live In Hope" is lined up next (I think LOL)...after my hooking distraction is either done or abandoned. ;-) You're off to a great start....your stash must be more complete than seems like every time I need a color, it is NOT amongst those I have. Hope your week is off to a great start Edgar! ~Robin~

  5. Pretty color palette that you have stitched so far, Edgar! I think you will be happier with the Collards than the missing thread.

  6. So good to read from you ❤️
    I agree, BBD’s projects are always fun, and the borders in particular, scrumptious!
    Love it when your stash turns into your own LNS and saves the day. Have fun stitching for the both of us �� ~~ Chiara
