Cross Stitchin' Update

Here is my first finish of 2011.

Blackbird Sampler
by Sandy (little ol' me)
Stitched on 16ct. Aida hand-dyed by me using my own hand-dyed threads.
I think I stitched it in February.

This is a new piece I started at the end of March.
It's a SAL with The Stitch Specialists
yahoo group.
There are 16 parts to this SAL, parts 1-7 are shown in this picture.
A new part is released every Friday by Abi.
I am loving this design, it uses bunches of different specialty stitches, so far there have been cross stitch, Smyrna cross, colonial knots, eyelets, rice stitch, padded stitch, & Jerusalem stitch with beads added to a few of the sections.

Design: Tree of Stitches
Designer: Abi
Stitched on 28ct. sponge-dyed evenweave in Light Blue using my own hand-dyed threads in Black Walnut, Burnished Leaves & Pryor Mountain Sage, so far.

I'm trying really hard to get the pictures of my threads to come out right, the colors always seem to be off. It's so annoying.

Thanks for stopping by I really do appreciate all of your visits & comments.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
