Blackbird Designs Mystery Bonus #1

I am happy to say that I have finished the Blackbird Designs Mystery Bonus #1 and I am just about ready to start the second one. Danielle and I have been working on this project together and I think she is almost done as well.


Design: Where My Heart Blooms Mystery Bonus #1 (Loose Feathers #31)
Designer: Blackbird Designs
Fabric: 30ct R&R Reproductions - Korty's Blend
Thread: Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works

The weather has been miserable the last few days and tomorrow should be the worst of it, although it is supposed to rain the rest of the week. Looks like tomorrow is a great day to stay home and sew. I have a mountain of washing to get done, but I am only washing the barest of minimum to get us through the week. My house looks like a laundromat, with clothes and towels hanging around all over the place. I have used the drier a bit, but with the cold temperatures in the house and the high humidity, everything starts dripping with moisture. Can't wait for the sunny weather at the end of this coming week.

That is a lovely design. I really like the birds in it.

The weather here in the UK isn't so good either considering we're well into spring. Last weekend we had hot, hot, hot, in fact too hot and now it is about 16 degrees and throwing it down with rain. Can't win. We don't have happy medium here :o/

Pretty design! BBD are one of my all time favourites.

Hey Suzanne, the sun is shining up here. Pity I slept in washing wise. Oh well, we need the rain, but boy do you get sick of it. Know the feeling about the house looking like a laundromat lol.
Your BBD is looking lovely. Love all the blackbirds. - Sandra.

Wonderful finish! That is a great design. We've had alot of rain over here too, very unusual. But it is a good excuse to do cross stitch all day!

Marie-P said...

I hope that the sun makes an appearance very soon.

Beautiful job on the BBD!

I have these patterns. I wasn't going to get the last freebie as I didn't like the actual pattern, but then I saw them all stitched together and it had to be! I'm currently in love with dyed fabrics, so maybe I'll check my stash for some and begin stitching this one too. Congrast on finishing the first part.

Danielle said...

Looks gorgeous! I only have the vine left to stitch and hope to work on it tonight finally!! Are you going to dive into part two now? Hope your weather improves!!

Sally said...

How pretty! I always forget about this one, I should start stitching it before I start weeding out the patterns.
