Singing The Blues

LHN Singing the Blues
28 Ct Lambswool Jobelin
Crescent Colors

I finished stitching Singing the Blues by Little House Needleworks. I purchased the pattern at Everything Cross Stitch in Fredericksburg while I was on vacation.
I checked into the suggested frame from Crescent Colors and thought I would splurge and order it, but almost went into cardiac arrest when I saw the cost. lol.
I found a  7 inch square frame on line that I am going to order.

Spring Biscornu
Cedar Hill

I am stitching on Spring Biscornu by Cedar Hill. It is going to be larger than any I have made so far but I love pansies and am looking forward to finishing it up and seeing the results.

I have actually finished another pansy and one of the leafs since I took this picture. I am stitching on 32 count fabric from R&R so I think that will make it a little smaller. The instructions for putting it together are as clear as mud, lol and if I didn't know how to finish a biscornu I wouldn't have a clue.


I have my 2 year blogoversary coming up in 20 days and I am working on a giveaway so be sure to check back and enter to win.

Singing the blues is so pretty. I hate to hear the frame was too pricey - I have wondered if they were very expensive, they sure are pretty.
