Pre Valentine's Day Weekend Update

I managed to miss WIP Wednesday, so I decided to just hang on until Friday to do a pre weekend update. I am hoping to put a bit of time in on this one. I am really taking my time on this one, and I suppose I shouldn't feel guilty. But I do. I really want to get more from from the Bin O'Shame completed. I know it's only February, but I should have at least 2 more from the Bin O'Shame stitched up by now. Ah, well. It's only mid February, so there is time, I suppose. :)


At any rate, here is the latest: 


Design: Birds and Berries (needlebook)from the book A Stitcher's Journey



Designer: Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in 640, 642, 842, 3041, 3799, 3782.
