My First Blackbird

Well, after a long, long blogging absence, I have been inspired by my completion of The House on Acorn Hill today to actually get out the camera, take a picture and upload it onto the computer. Once that was done, it didn't seem like such a huge step to actually make a new blog post. So here I am.

It seems appropriate that this design is finished right at the beginning of autumn. And I have to say that, even though it has become cliche, I enjoyed every stitch. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I just love the colors that go with it. There are a few more Blackbird designs that I am eager to stitch, so there will hopefully be a new start around here soon.

Since I had the camera out, I snapped an updated picture of my LHN Dear Diary sampler. I am exactly at the halfway point on this one, and I'll be starting on the fifth little sampler tomorrow.




So far, the Abigail Winslow sampler has been my favorite. I just love the little ship, the dock and the brown house.



I also did the Lucy Fairchild in Savannah sampler which came out rather elegant.


I might take a short break on this large sampler compilation to work on a smaller wintry LHN. I haven't quite decided yet.

That is all for now. Until next time...

Good to see you posting again Laura. Strangely enough I was only thinking about you yesterday when I was catching up on blogs and wondering what you were up to and if you were OK.

Your BBD looks lovely as does your DD Sampler.
