their song

Here's my latest finish, finally!

This is the latest in the Loose Feathers Series by Blackbird Designs and is called Their Song. I used the recommended fabric and threads. It took me so long to finish this one...just couldn't get into my usual stitching groove the past couple of weeks, I think Steve's death has put me in a funk and it's been hard to get things done in other areas as well. But, it was a joy to stitch, one of my all time favorites. Can't wait to see the rest in this series this year, they're all going to be bird related. And I love birds!



edited to add: I had forgotten to do the backstitching on the cherry vines part along the top, DUH! Fixed it though :)

Andrea this is gorgeous! I can't believe you already have it stitched and so beautifully. I haven't even received mine in the mail yet - maybe tomorrow! I also love birds and am looking forward to the rest of this series. I have Bluebird's Message, but I haven't stitched it yet either. Maybe I should put these two at the top of my to do list!

Thanks for sharing,
Nancy

Great finish! I'm almost 3/4 done with this piece and I'm loving every stitch! I think it's going to be one of my all-time favourites too :)

Beautiful!! I didn't know that this years Loose Feathers would all be bird related. The first two 'bird' themed samplers have been awesome for sure! You're making me want to start a BBD, I think it's been a while since I worked on one. :)
