Hi everyone! A finish to share this time round! Yes, BBD’s Birds and Berries needlebook is completed and what a nice piece it was to work on. I loved the colours and well, I think I’m going to be on a BBD kick for another little while as there are several other designs in A Stitcher’s Journey that are calling my name.
This one is stitched on a piece of 32ct linen from my fabric stash and I used the suggested threads. My only change was that I stitched the year in the top right hand corner rather than 'No 2' that was originally charted. Believe it or not I’m contemplating finishing this one into a needlebook myself ! Having read the instructions and telling myself that all I have to do is sew straight seams I’m thinking I might give this a go. Now, as you know, I’m not the world’s most confident finisher so could be I’ll chicken out when I get to the bit but, I’d really like to give it a try.
The nice spring weather we’ve been having has continued (and yes, DH has had to cut the grass again!!!!). This week my daughter is home for a few days. As she hasn’t been here since Christmas it’s lovely to see her although already the time is going far too quickly. She leaves Saturday and that just feels like it'll be here in no time. Wishing you all a lovely Easter and if you’re spending it with family and friends, enjoy.
Until next time….
