Well, you didn't think I'd get anywhere near Tulsa on a Saturday and not visit The Silver Needle, did you? Of course, almost the second I walked through the door a few Blackbird Designs things got stuck to my hands. I couldn't get rid of the stuff and I ended up having to pay for them! Can you imagine? Then after I got home this little project kept calling my name, begging to be stitched. Chalk this one up as the miracle project...one that Daffycat stitched AND finished with 24 hours, beginning to end. This never happens!
Design ~ Tweet Hearts, Exemplar #1
Designer ~ Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs
Fabric ~ 32 count tea-stained Belfast Linen
Fiber ~ DMC
A darling project. It is from the book For My Friend. I'm fond of mildly prim finishes like this ~ very forgiving of my inexpert sewing skills! This shaped bit of sewing was somewhat a challenge to me ~ I had a little trouble catching both fabrics in the seam. Not like a square pillow, is it? I neatly covered my doofy seams with a buttonhole stitch using # 12 Perle Cotton. The green plaid fabric shown was my backing and since a sweet pinpillow needed some pretty new pins, I made four to go with. I'm just tickled with it. Be aware...99% of the credit goes to Barb and Alma for the lovely detailed finishing instructions in their books.
