I've been plodding along with all those blues on the bluebirds design.....but those blues are beginning to get to me! It's been slow progress this week...
.....you can see the beginning of the lettering start to form, so that feels like progress. Once the back stitching has been done then I'm hoping that the lettering will stand out a bit more.
Luckily for me, this month's issue of The World of Cross Stitching magazine arrived and I was able to break up the boredom of stitching all blues with something that had some bright springlike colours to break up the monotony of those blue threads....the free kit....
This was a super-fast design and I had this finished in one evening....yay me!!!! Another card finish to add to my stash.
And here's how you really know that those blue threads were getting to me.....I picked up the cardinal stitching more than once! Yup, even the black fabric was more appealing than blue threads :)
I had forgotten to mention in my last post the name of this design....it's called 'Ice Cardinal'. It's a dimensions kit and the design is by Mark Mueller.
Unfortunately for me, if you look closely at the ice covered branches you'll see that there's lots of....you've guessed it.....blues!
Looks like I'll be feeling the blues for some time to come!
Until next time....happy stitching!
