Blackbird Designs Update

Managed to put some more time in the Merry Christmas sampler from Blackbird Designs. I am so, so happy with the color choices I made with this one. The floss just *POPS* off of the fabric. The chart called for Crescent Colours Pea Pod and Gentle Arts Endive. The colors were so far off and quite frankly, not to my taste that I had to substitute. I am substituting Crescent Colours Four Leaf Clover and Spinach and I love the way it looks.

At any rate, on with the stitchy notes and pictures! :D (Please note that the fabric is actually quite darker than in the pictures!)

Design: Merry Christmas from the Joyeux Noël design book

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: R& R Reproductions 30 count overdyed linen in Witches' Teeth

Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton flosses in Antique Lace, Clay Pot, Four Leaf Clover, Spinach, and Wild Berries

Well, time for work! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :)

It is a lot of fun to stitch up. It's going quick, and I am loving how it is turning out.

Thank you so much for your kind comments! :)
