Blackbird Design Freebie


Look at me. Another freebie finish in a week! I finished it last night. It's stitched on 28 ct. Blush linen from Silkweaver. That's one of their really old colors. I doubt they still make it. The thread is Grape Juice Belle Soie from Crescent Colors. As a warning...it will dye your fingernails blue. WAIT...hold the phone LOL I didn't finish...look at that little motif that's not finished. What's wrong with me? LOL

I've heard the same thing about the reds from Belle Soie. :(

I think it looks great, unfinished or not. lol The same thing has happened to me many times before.

What a lovely almost-finish!!

I have also dyed my fingers blue with Belle Soie. I think the colour was Blur Lagoon

Love your finish! I have this pattern printed out too, but I don't know when I'll be able to get to it.

As for the Belle Soie, I've never had a problem with them bleeding on my fingers.......and I work with them all the time as a model stitcher.

very pretty Autumn - I've done that too - thought something was finished only to realize at the last second something was missing.

Very pretty! I have to finish mine one of these days. Love the color used. I can't tell you how many times I've finished something only to discover, nope, not quite done......

It's lovely!
I have also done that where I thought something was done when it wasn't. :)

Great "almost" finish, lol !! It's beautiful with that fiber and floss. I love it!

Lovely finish. I stitched this after my weekend in Paris and am going to make it into a cover for a memento book with photos, metro and train tickets etc.

I won't use Belle Soie because of the colour bleed. I have no idea how people use them for large projects!
