My Next Project

I think that this is going to by my next project. I love cross stitch and I have been away from it for quite awhile. As you can see it is a Blackbird Design. The name of it is Willow House. I love the color of the fabric. It is 28 count tobacco. I am going to use weeks over dyed floss that the pattern calls for. Has anyone stitched this pattern? I hope to show some progress very soon.

It has been years and years since I did any cross stitch. Bet whatever your making will entice alot of us to do it again. :-)

Hi Pat, just found you thru Rachel’s blog. Now I’m likely to say “I love” several times! I love what you made for Peg (what a lucky lady). I love the ‘Primitive Garden’ quilt you’re making, but gosh it looks like hard work! I love Primitive Gatherings – how I wish I lived in the US. And I also love Blackbird Designs – your new cross-stitch looks really nice. All this and I’ve only looked on the first page of your blog – I shall be back:0)

Oh that is going to be very nice. I have been away from cross stitch for a while too.
Can I ask where you got the fabric from? I don't have shops around here that sell cross stitch fabric.

It's gotta be a keeper, Pat if it's from Blackbird Designs. I can't wait to see your progress. Maybe that'll light a candle under my you-know-what and make me take the plunge as well. You know it's all your fault, huh? VBG!

Your swap gifts are to absolutely die for. I love them all. Peg is one very lucky lady.

Such a gorgeous project and I love the colour of the linen.
Have you started it yet? I can't wait to see.
