Blackbird Designs

I spend a weekend a month cross-stitching a Blackbird Designs patterns.  Stitched on coffee/tea dyed Aida 16 count.  Flosses were changed bto reflect the chart photograph.  DMC 3768, 3774, 223, 224, 840, 3857, 221, 3011, 830, and 3752.

May Word Play

At the beginning of the year I made a list of things to accomplish in my creative life- one of them is this piece.  I made some changes and used a variety of odds and ends flosses and live the result.  Sorry I did not iron it.  I have stitched nearly half if the monthly patterns in this set.  A safe guess is that another one will show up next year.  

June Cross-Stitch

Stitching with the Housewives has done it again!  Another cute pattern!  I just love the vintage trucks and one in pink!  This piece is stitched on 14 count chalkboard black Aida.  Flosses include DMC 904, 907, 3822, Blanc, 224, 304 and good old 310.  There is a mistake or two I chose to leave them in the design.
