A new start for Slow Stitching on Sunday

Since I finished the BBD Her Sampler SAL piece last week I pondered whether I should go back and pick up a WIP or start something new...hmmmm... nanosecond decision - something NEW! I had this little sampler already kitted up and I away I went. (Ignore the shadowy lines - I photographed this on my design wall and the grid is showing through).

This is My Heart's Design. It is the second offering in the Loose Feathers Abecedarian Series from BBD. You can see it I want to do all 12 in the series and this is the third one I've stitched. So far they've released 10 designs so I'm a bit behind, but I'll get there eventually.

This one has a very muted palette - Gentle Arts Lexington Green, Mountain Mist, Toast ed Barley, Carmel Corn and Weeks -Pelican Gray and Charcoal. I like the little motifs with their Dutch flair.

Blackbird Designs plans for the 12 samplers when completed will "fit into a configuration that will easily fit over a sofa, fireplace or headboard". I envision  a collage like setting and think perhaps instead of framing each one I could sash them with fabric and make a wall quilt of them. I'll have to wait and see how this all turns out.

Hope you are having a lovely day - happy stitching!

  5. Great stitching! I love that design!

  6. Really like the quiet color pallet. The design will look instantly older and well loved.
