Stitching on Sunday

It is another beautiful day here in southwest Ohio and the stitching is coming along nicely. This is Rosy Morning by Blackbird Designs, the ninth release of the Loose Feathers Abecedarian Series.

The border sucked me into this one big time. I love a good border on a sampler and I particularly like a border that isn't the same on all four sides. Now I always worry that things won't join up when I'm stitching one of these borders but this one came off without a hitch.

And who can resist the wonderful quirkiness of a giant mutant bird standing next to a lovely turquoise-y blue house? Come on, admit it, it makes you smile too!

With baseball back in full swing I'm stitching a lot while I "watch", well actually listen more than watch, and look up when they replay things. And considering how my beloved Cincinnati Reds are playing some things are better off unseen. Oh well, it is a long season.

Hope things in your neck of the woods are going well - I'm off to do errands and go to the garden center. Today the weather is gorgeous, the rest of the week - rain rain rain rain rain rain - you get the picture.

I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts. Go check out what everyone else is working on. Lots of interesting projects.

Happy stitching-

  1. I too like to stitch while I "watch" sports. It is really the only way for me to focus. Your cross stitching is lovely. I am visiting from Slow Sunday Stitching!

  2. It sure does make me smile :)
    Love your pretty scissors too!
    Enjoy your stitching!

  3. Very pretty! Good thing you have lots of stitching time to look forward to with all that rain. We had a shower Friday night but nothing measurable, I'm sure.

  4. I have to does make me smile just like those polka dot chickens in your blog header. My many stitches per inch??? How can you see to do such work?

  5. Looking beautiful, love the colors

  6. "a giant mutant bird" - yep, gotta love it. It's going to be a lovely finish.

  7. Are those Monsanto genetically engineered flowers on the border Carol?!? I love the super-sized flowers and the big old peacock too. What a great stitch to celebrate spring time.

  8. Your cross-stitch is wonderful as always.

    Have a nice week, Manuela

  9. Great progress! I love weird scale...I especially love tiny houses and big flowers and/or plants. How does the flower not fall and crush the little house?! ;-D

  10. Gorgeous progress on this one. I love the border and the colors.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
