meanwhile...

when I'm supposed to be working on my A&E sampler, I finish other things instead...

...like this Blackbird Designs "Union Forever"



My friend Patti had the same pattern and stitched hers up so beautifully...when I saw it about a week or so ago, I ran right home and pulled out some fabric to start on mine!



It called for Antique Cotton by R&R, but I found some Moonlit Glenshee that was perfect, it's much more golden than what it appears to be in these photos.



I stitched it with the recommended threads, WDW and GA.



Thanks for the inspiration Patti!

It's just beautiful Andrea! I think it's fun sometimes to go through stash and find the perfect linen which makes the piece unique to you. And, I thank you for your inspiration!

Great finish! I love the design and the colors. You did a great job working in your initials and year; they look like part of the design. Nice!
