Moonlit Garden Happy Dance

Moonlit Garden - Loose Feathers #22
Blackbird Designs
Linen - 32 count Silkweavers Antique Gold
Thread - recommended Weeks Dye Works

For those of you who read my blog, I think you know by now, when I'm almost finished with a piece, I will just finish it up rather than work on a planned WIP. :-) Well such was the case last night with Moonlit Garden. I only had ten stars to go so I went ahead and finished it up. As you can see, I added the bottom row of stars and left off the saying. I'm planning on finishing it into a pillow.

I'm happy with how it turned out and if you like fall colors (and you know who you are :-)) this is one for you.

I started back with Blackwork Fantasy Garden on the train this morning. And almost fell asleep. It's boring to work on when all I do is follow the outline. I'll try to stick it out for a couple of days then I need to get back to My Workstation project to complete part 3 by the end of the month. I LOVE the new Loose Feathers #23 and I have all the supplies ready to go - just waiting for the chart to arrive from Drema.

Oh I love this done without the verse at the bottom! I hadn't even thought about stitching this one yet and now I know I will do the same and the pillow idea is great, gonna steal that idea as well. :)

Margie, it's beautiful! I'm definitely going to stitch mine the same, with the star border at the bottom, it's much nicer than the original verse - congratulations!

Carol said...

You are amazing! Congratulations! I also really like this without the verse - very good idea!! (Since I already have that verse on about 10 other charts anyhow - will probably stitch this one without it as you did! Thank you!

Anita said...

it is very pretty..:) and I love the fabric you used.

It looks absolutely beautiful! I didn't like this one at all when it came out but seeing yours without the verse has made me rethink. I might stitch it yet :) Thanks for the inspiration!

And thanks for the offer of Bluebird's Message. I think I'm going to trade with Karen as she's getting my Strawberry Garden and wanted to give me something in return :)

Emily said...

That's really pretty! I love the colors...

Michelle said...

Love the colors! This came out so nice with the stars at the bottom and will make a great pillow! Congrats on a beautiful finish. Hope you can stay awake stitching on your knots though - you may want to break up the monotony with the blackwork!
