WIP Wednesday Their Song Update

This is one of those designs that I swear I am not making any progress on until I post pictures. It's a bit larger than I gave it credit for, and it seems as if it is crawling along in places. I think I have managed to get the tree off center, so I am scrambling to make it work as there is no way under the face of God's green earth I am ripping out all of that silk. 'Make do and mend' is one of the stitcher's creeds, and so I shall. I am hoping to put some serious time in on this one, as I am fairly anxious that  Patricia G of the Fans of Blackbird Designs Facebook Group gets her chart back posthaste. 

Well, here is my progress so 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 Monday, August 17, 2015:




As of Wednesday, August 19, 2015:




Well, I had best be off. Lots to do today. Hope everyone has a great day today! :)
