Garden Of Life - Blackbird Designs FINISHED





YAY! Told Brian I wasn't going to get off my stitching chair till I was finished! Well I'm happy to say I had to get off the chair so I could go to the ironing board to do de-wrinkle!


This is my version of Garden of Life from Blackbird Designs, stitched on a piece of 28ct "white" (unsure of the color's name) linen. With the recommended floss, WDWs, and GASTs.


I told Brian that this finish is going on our wall!


When I took some pictures with the camera, I couldn't get it cropped right, and besides I was always getting the date in the way (I was too lazy to take it off.. LOL). So I thought I would also do a scan... so I have a scan and a picture taken with the camera.

Next on the agenda to stitch is Liberty House Sampler from Heart In Hand, that I had seen on another blog. So I might just put a few stitches in it tonight.

I had to work this afternoon - was a busy day!! Would have thought that with graduation ceremony going on, we would have been slow. Nope, was busy from the time I got there till the time I went home! I sold material for a quilt that I had made the store model for! The customer just loved it. So that made it great to have it made up. I'm thankful that my coworker had pointed out the pattern and ordered the material!

Well for tomorrow, lets see. I really have no plans. I'm just thankful I'm not in a tent tonight!! Its currently 41 degrees here!! I have slept in a tent when it got down to 48 degrees, and that was just bearable with layers of clothing on.

Beautiful finish, I love the colors. You mentioned your version of it, did you alter the colors or the design? Either way I think it deserves a space on your wall! I love hanging my stitching and seeing it in passing.
Congrats!

And another great finish! You've certainly got smokin' needles going, Kim! :o)

I like the LHN finish too - I keep pulling that one out & looking at it. That may just have to be my next piece.
