Sampler Progress and Blackbird Designs Stash


Good morning friends, and what a frosty & chilly start we've had to the day. No snow here though, like down in the South Island, brrrrr. 

Thanks for all the lovely comments left about my recent finishes - I'm hoping to spend a bit more time at my sewing machine this weekend as I've got a little pile of stitched projects to make a dent in!  I spent a bit of time at the local sewing shop recently to match up some fabric and buttons for the next lot of wall hangings I'm intending to sew :)

This morning I have the lastest progress pic of my Mystery sampler for you to see. The colours look a bit washed out in this photo, it's been really hard to get a decent photo with the true thread and fabric colours showing.  I'm really enjoying stitching on this piece and have trouble putting it down at night!


A little while ago, I was really excited to find a New Zealand stockist of Blackbird Design patterns, Broomfields in Christchurch, so a little bundle of patterns soon arrived in our mailbox.


I also have Christmas Garden on it's way to me as soon as its back in stock - that's one design that I really can't wait to start!

Friday seems to have rolled around very quick this week and at the moment it looks like we'll be having a quiet weekend around home.  When I finish work today I'm heading to the hairdressers for a cut and colour, and then later,  I'm off for a treat - a facial!  I'll be a new woman by tonight, lol.  


Thanks for stopping by xxx

Hi Nicky Your stitching looks great! I am working on the same sampler. I actually started it last year and just now picked it up again in the last couple of days.
Happy Stitching

Lovely progress on your stitching. I love BBD designs. I would collect all of the charts if I had the money. :D I will get them eventually. Enjoy your time getting pampered.

Ah, a friend of like mind! I'm a huge fan of BBD and I think I have just about every pattern that you ordered, lol! Christmas Garden is all kitted up and ready to go here. Problem is, I just have too many of them ready to go and not enough time.
Fabulous stitching on your Mystery Sampler. You're making me think I should really get started on mine.
