BBD stitch-along


Good morning.  Before running out the door, I had to pull a few things together after seeing Blackbird Design's stitch-along post here.  (Photo from their blog.)
 
Love this little sampler.  I pulled a piece of R&R's Sea Glass thinking these colors would be perfect on it.  Couldn't wait for them to release more details and wanted to start on linen choice. I need to change the gold to 3829 - again - and maybe even switch to a very dark unbleached ground.  Or lighter with a darker gray for the eyelet section. Or not.  See?  I hate having to start something new. 
Colors, sizes, background, one thread or two - AWK!  Having a family of few, and not a stitcher in sight, I won't be passing it to other members as they suggested.  Just me.  The lone stitcher.  Who can't decide on 30 Sea Glass or 35 Mink. Lambswool 40?  Who may do it all!  Who has to get out the door for errands. 
 
I'm not the only one that gets the evil eye from this tiny princess.  She chased Squeak away shortly after this was snapped.  Old man Bud is tired of fighting and is sleeping sitting up.  He does that a lot.  We were watching tv one evening and he just fell over!
 
 
Enjoy your weekend!  Stay safe.
Thanks for stopping by.

Good luck in running your errands today, Marly! I was wondering if you were going to join this SAL; this sampler is so you!

Enjoy your weekend!

I think all calico cats have the ability to give"the evil eye"....I know my cat Aggie does. She is also a bit of a biter, my neighbors know this and can pet her twice only before she nips. I overheard a Mom saying to her little one "yes, you can pet her but only two times". Yet she rubs around their legs for a long time. Cats!!!!!!

I'm the lone stitcher in my family too but I don't know about those eyelets. I'm no smart enough to figure out how to stitch the eyelet & travel to the next one without crossing over the opening!!! And I've been stitching over 30 years!! Eyelets & queen stitches.....BAH!!! Love the cat stories!!

Beautiful choices for the SAL! Like Vickie, I thought of you too when they posted the sampler :D Hey, where's the pattern they posted? I looked and can't find it and I noticed you started already!

Barb said...

It looks like a fun sew along! I am so glad that I'm not the only one who keeps changing things and making myself just a bit crazy!!!!!

Kaisievic said...

ooh, I am going to do this too! But I cannot see the pattern posted yet either!

P.S. Loved the Old Man Bud story!

Margaret said...

Very pretty! Have they posted it yet? The chart that is? lol about Bud. Mia tends to fall asleep with her head up but in the sphinx position. No falling over yet. :D
