Another BBD SAL finish!



This is Rite of Spring, another Loose Feather design from Blackbird designs. I stitched it with Suzanne over at Squazi and the Chicken (www.squaziandthechicken.blogspot.com/). It was a fun stitch but those circles were hard to line up, I did quite a bit of frogging.




This is my next WIP, Peacock Cypher from Just Nan. My MIL picked it up at Cecilia's Sampler in Branson during her last visit. She asked if I could stitch it up for her and change it into a wedding sampler for her and FIL. This is how far I have gotten on it. I want to finish it before we go home this summer!



Here's another Lilliput iris. It's really small and cute.

School has slowed down somewhat. We did get a longer time period to finish up that last 3 chapters so that feels kind of good. I was so stressed out there for a while due to short time lines we got and the fact that we had major hand ins and a big test every other week since the class started.

Thank you for visiting and all your sweet commments!

Your BBD is fabulous! And I'm anxious to see the Just Nan all done too!
Good going :)

Love your BBD piece. I can imagine the circles would be hard to match up - at least I know it would be for me. Hope you didn't have to do too much frogging. And can't wait to see the Just Nan finished up. I love the color of it.

Love Rite of Spring--such pretty colors! And isn't the iris glorious--my very favorites, and here such a short time! Thank goodness our needlework lasts!

It's beautiful! Do you plan to frame all your BBD?

Your BBD pieces are beautiful. I am hoping to start the four or is it five bonus patterns that they released on some of their patterns. I saw it completed at one of the shop hop stores and now must stitch it!
Looking forward to seeing how you change the JN piece to be an anniversary sampler.
Beautiful flowers.
Happy Stitching!

I love both of your BD finishes. They're so pretty! I'd been following Suzanne's progress and didn't realize you were stitching it together.
Your irises are beautiful. I put in my first ones last year and I'm anxious to see them bloom.

Suzanne said...

Congratulations on finishing Rites Of Spring! I agree, those circles were difficult and I really dreaded having to stitch them.

I love the peacock piece.

Sally said...

Lovely progress on the JN. Such a pretty blue.

So pretty! Lovely finish. I love BBD. I should really subscribe to Loose Feathers. Every time I see one I want it! Those peacocks are gorgeous- what a fun piece!

Siobhan said...

Woohoo!! Congratulations on your BBD finish. I love their stuff. I like your peacock progress, too.

Wow, two BBD finishes is such a short time. SALing does the trick, doesn't it? Gorgeous!
I love your irises, they look wonderful in the different colours.
