Usually with specialty floss it’s recommended to stitch one X at a time. I think my bird would more resemble the chart had I done one row all the way across one leg and then complete the leg of the X on the way back. Something new learned again! I will just have to embrace the “personalization” of my stitching yet again and be okay with some of those “rustic” stitches that are a bit messy and bulky as I attempted to smooth the blocky transition from dark to light floss by stitching over some existing stitches! Not frogging, nope! #bbd#blackbirddesigns#tenderheartseries
Nothing like a bit of Fall smack dab in the middle of the Christmas decor, but I’ve been organizing and tidying the piles on every one of my flat surfaces getting ready to jump feet first back into some design work and that meant sashing these blocks so they can move off my to-do counter 😀 but swipe left to see the real reason🤣Did you know that you can use the Tri-Recs ruler set to cut this sashing? The ruler set was developed by dzimmerman1252 and has always been a go to ruler for me😀 and #notpaperpieced so my plaids don’t get wonky, just perhaps casually off-grain🤣 so very happy to have this beautiful quilt, The Raven by #blackbirddesigns and blackbirdalma done, off my to-do list/counter✅ and double ✅ #ones1ster#needleturnapplique#trirecsruler#quiltersofinstagram#quilts#quilting #

On to Tis The Season! My great stitchy friend Marsha at kruzsoap gifted me the linen and silks! All the called for linen and silks-she made me the luckiest girl in the world! 😁 Thank you Marsha! 💕#blackbirddesigns #crossstitcher#crossstitchersofinstagram#crossstich
Probably not a good idea to be thinking of Spring when we are about to be buried with 24 inches of snow and -38°wind chill. No worries, I've got lots of the essentials on hand :. °Stitching 🧵✂️ °wine 🍷 °Netflix 🎬 How's your weekend looking?
Got myself a Strawberry Fields Forever finish! Loooved this stitch and I want to make all the #blackbirddesigns now. Stitched on the called for Confederate Grey #weeksdyeworks linen with some called for threads and some DMC/#victorianmottosamplershoppe substitutions. And I made a few color swaps throughout the piece, largely dictated by my laziness to go into the next room to find the right color 😂❤️ #topknotfinish19#blackbirdbeatlessal
I had a really rough work day, so I was pretty happy about all the stitchy mail that showed up! First is Blackbird Designs Away We Fly pattern, which I adore. Secondly, I recieved my needleminders from @houseofmeng, and they are so adorable! Finally, I got fabric for some of my Year of WIPs pieces. PTP Oaken for Spooky Countdown, PTP Dubloon for Garden Vegetables and PTP Crystal Bashful for The Schoolgirls Days.
Here’s my 9 projects I’m working towards finishing in 2019! I love that this will help hold me accountable and help me reach my goal! 1 - Cake Walk quilt by Thimbleblossoms made with Figtree fabrics. 2- Christmas at Hollyberry Farm by Stacy Nash. 3- Away We Ride by Blackbird Designs. 4- Cats on Parade by Blackbird Designs. 5- American Eagle by Blackbird Designs. 6 - Winter Wind by Prairie Schooler. 7- Bunny & Company by With thy Needle and Thread. 8- Queen of Freedom by Mirabilia. 9- Liberty’s Welcome by Plum Street Samplers. The funnest part is stitching with y’all and getting to start something new with each finish! #plumstreetsamplers#stacynash#blackbirddesigns#withthyneedleandthread#thimbleblossoms#figtreefabrics#prairieschooler#mirabilia#stitch9challenge Big thanks to Michelle for such a fun stitch along challenge!
