Their Song Pre Weekend Update

I had not idea of this, but apparently, today is World Cross Stitching Day. It was created to spread the word and to celebrate cross stitch. I think it's a good idea. I think we should have all kinds of crafting days to celebrate. Think of all the undiscovered crafts lurking out there!

Well, here is a pre weekend update on Their Song. I am quite anxious to finish this one as quickly as possible, as it *is* a loan from Patricia G and I would like for her to get this rare and quite valuable chart back as soon as humanly possible. So, this weekend, I will be pretty much knuckling down and stitching on this as much as I can. Right now, I have laundry going and the house is all cleaned up (as is my custom) prior to the weekend so there will be minimal distractions. 

Well, here is my humble offering thus far: 

Design: Their Song (Chart #24. From the 2007 Loose Feathers series) 

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Harvest, Ivy League, Old Crow,
Slate, and Tulip. Gloriana Threads 12 strand French silk floss in #016 Holiday Green. 

Stitcher's Notes: Chart on loan from Patricia G of the Fans of Blackbird Designs Facebook Group. 126w by 150h. Replaced the Weeks Dye Works cotton embroidery floss for silks. 

Original Design:

As of Wednesday, August 12, 2015:

As of Friday, August 14, 2015:

I had best be off. I believe the laundry is now ready. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
