BBD "Moon Garden".....

BBD "Moon Garden"
30 ct. R&R 18th Century Rook
w/Sampler Threads

I finished this up last night so that's one more Challenge piece I can mark off the list! 


The pastel colors really complement the darker fabric...wish my photography skills could capture it.  Cameo pink gives just a hint of  color and I love it with the yellowish green of Willow.  So glad to use some threads that I have been hoarding for years!

Now...on to another Challenge piece.  I am having a hard time getting into Frederick so I think I am going to switch to "The Bird Tree" since it is a little less daunting and another one of my favorites. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great stitchy week!

  6. I am like you Karen....I have all these "different" flosses that I wonder what I will ever use them on...Then a piece like this comes along and viola~~ (do you like my French??? lol)...This design is really something and I think the fabric choice is what really adds to it all....LOVE this because it is a little different.... Nice job my friend, Faye

  41. Beautiful finish, Karen! I love it. The entire time I stitched mine, I wanted to sing, "I'm being followed by a moon flower, moon flower moon flower...". I think it's James Taylor who sang, "Moon Shadow". Or Cat Stevens. Anyhoo, just had to tell you that. ;)
