Loose Feather Mystery finis


Loose Feather Mystery - Blackbird Designs
32 count Heritage linen by Silkweaver
recommended fibers

Wow, two big finishes in the same week. :-) I finished up the Mystery today on the way into work. I'll get a better photo tonight after it's been pressed. I love how this turned out. The colors, the style and the saying are all perfect for me. I've been very negligent about framing my finishes over the past couple of years, but I really want to get this one on the wall asap.

Now back to the Big Zipper!

Wow!!! I was just looking at some of your '08 & '09 finishes. Beautiful... and numerous. :)
I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!

It's really gorgeous - I'm a bit daunted to start it myself, but you've done a beautiful job so I think this one might eventually make it into my 'to stitch' pile! It will look beautiful framed.
