Where Flowers Bloom

After finishing my Busy Needle, I perused through my stash of Blackbird Designs patterns to find a new stitch. I was on the automatic for the loose feathers a few years back so I have just a few. While browsing through A Schoolgirl's Work book, I came across one that made me think of a friend who recently lost her dad. I decided to stitch this up for her.


I did have to switch out a few colors as I do not have very many Crescent Colors and I AM stitching from stash, ya know! I am very please with it and I hope she will be too!


Had a great time at our stitching day yesterday. Caught up with some old friends and made some new ones. Cathy has a few pictures if you would like to see.


Now I begin my quest for a frame!
