Stitched on 32 Vintage Buttercream by Lakeside Linen using the GAST that the design calls for.
This design is from the Blackbird Designs "A Stitcher's Journey" book & I stitched it for Carol. We decided back before Easter sometime to do a private exchange and this is what I decided to make for her. USPS shows it was delivered yesterday afternoon, so I thought it was safe to share a picture now. I sure hope Carol likes it! This is one of my two favorite designs from this book & I plan to stitch it again for myself. The fabric used in the finishing & the pincushion is by Blackbird Designs as well... which is my all time favorite. I decided to use different fabrics on the inside, as you can see.
I didn't stitch earlier in the week & night before last, I decided to pick up a new, small project. I hope to finish it tonight - we'll see! :-) I'll be back soon with more to share.
Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!!
**Edited to add - the first picture makes it look like the fabric on top isn't smooth around the edges. It is, it's the rick rack trim around the outside edge that makes it look that way from the top. Here is another picture showing that part a bit! :-)
