Here is my finished Bluebird's Message. Super quick project and the colors are great. So nice and bright! I still plan to make it into a pillow - I'll see what I can come up with this weekend.
Here is my new start for the train. I put the Sampler of Stitches and Quaker Sampling I in a bag and pulled one out. Quaker Sampling from With My Needle won the battle! I'm stitching it on the recommended 32 count Lakeside Linens Sand Dune using one strand of Gentle Art Grape Leaf. It's a lovely green that goes well with Milady's Teal which is the recommended shade - I'll use it for Quaker Sampling II.
I'm over half way finished with Part 5 of Marquior but you'll have to take my word for it because I didn't have my camera yesterday - I'll take a progress picture tonight. I even added a bit more red to this section than the previous sections. I really like the pop.
