I was lucky enough that a dear friend loaned me her chart so I could stitch this beauty. It's been on my wish list for several years now and the secondary market prices had convinced me that the wish would never be realized. It is seriously my favorite stitch and it's like saying one child is a favorite, it's just not right but after seeing the pictures see if you don't agree.
It is stitched on Millennium Blue 32count Zweigart using the Gentle Art flosses. The colors just really pop on this fabric and I can't wait to get it framed.

I have been a follower of the blog and admired everyone's work since the beginning but I never posted before. I felt like my stitching didn't measure up to all the amazing stitchery that you guys post but I've finally gotten brave enough to share. Here's my 2013 Blackbird Design finishes so far:
Pink Hill Manor using recommended floss but mystery linen. It is stitched for my sweet niece, Rachel Elizabeth Gay
Moonlight Visitor stitched to honor my Aunt Brenda Gay Holland using recommended thread and mystery 32 count fabric
My Valentine still waiting for "honoring" and stitched on 30 count with recommended floss
Bluebird's Message using recommended floss and 28 count fabric
And To All A Good Night using recommended floss and 30 count fabric
I'm currently working on Happy Birthday and hope to add it to the completed pile later this month. Can't promise that because I'm leaving on Wednesday to head back home to Atlanta for a visit so might not get too much stitching done for awhile.

With Easter coming up, I thought it was nice to make something to do with Easter embroideries.
What would be nicer then to decorate an Easter Hare.
Edinburgh 35ct dyed by myself in soft lila/pink color.
The silk colors are my one choice
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
