Alpha Birds Finis

Alpha Birds from Sheepish Designs (part 1 of 3)
32 count Wichelt Latte Linen
Recommended NPI Silks

I finished up Alpha Birds on the way home yesterday. Rather than start part two - Alpha Menagerie, I decided to work on a Halloween piece I've had kitted up since last year. I didn't have a chance to get to before Halloween and then I didn't feel much like working on a seasonal piece after it's season. :-) Here is my progress on Trix or Treat from the booklet of the same name by Blackbird Designs. I'm using a Silkweavers solo I purchased special for it. I think it's a cool looking linen and I think it looks great. I'll turn this into a pillow for my couch when I'm done.

Margie, your finish is beautiful! I love these Alpha designs. Your new start is very pretty too. I really like your new title. I've been thinking about a new title for my blog too now that I'm in Florida. No Autumn here! LOL! :)
