BBD Exchange from Suzanne

Today I received my Blackbird Designs exchange from Suzanne and it came on a perfect day. I just came home from visiting my dad and was feeling kind of down. WOW! What a pick up!

Suzanne created a "stitcher's book" and it is just breathtaking. I have not seen anything like this before. She used different motifs from Blackbird Designs' "Their Song". The fabric she basted and baked using the coffee method and does it ever smell good! I will let the pictures speak for themselves.









These pictures really do not do it justice. It is simply gorgeous. Suzanne did a wonderful job stitching and finishing. She also sent some super goodies. She sent some supplies for my "pink stitches"--fabric, 2 dinky dye threads, pins and some ribbon. This really touched me. These will definitely go to good use. She also sent me some great smelling body lotion.


Thank you so much, Suzanne.
I love all of it and you really made my day!
