Their Song (Loose Feathers #24)
Blackbird Designs
Weeks on 28ct Apple Brown Bindy
Begun 5/30/07 Finished 8/7/07

I finished it last night. I only needed to finish up the top set of blackbirds and the cherry stems on that top branch. That sounds easy enough, but on Sunday I ran out of Charcoal thread with a bird and a half to go. This was all I lacked.

Their Song Bird and a Half 080607

I zipped over to my LNS on Monday at lunch, and guess what? They were all out of Charcoal thread. The sweet woman working looked in the back for me to see if they had any but didn’t find any. So she went into her own stitching bag and handed me her Charcoal. It was more than enough to finish my birds, so I’ll be taking what’s left back to her tomorrow. Disaster narrowly averted! I was determined to finish this before we left.

I plan to start Katrina’s RR when I get back and then I’ll be getting back to stitching on Baby Garden (I still have that over one goldfish pond to look forward to).

I am grateful for a finish!!

  23. A lovely project Michelle. How wonderful that woman in the LNS was to give you her skein of Charcoal to finish your project with. Now you’ll have a nice story to go with this piece. We stitchers do stick together, don’t we.

    Hope that you and Eric have a wonderful vacation and I look forward to hearing about some of it when you get back, perhaps with some pictures.

    Cheers. Judy

    It looks wonderful, congratulations. How kind of that lady, she is a ‘real stitcher’ knowing how frustrating it can be when we can’t get what we need.
