Love Blackbird and over one

I just finished up this Blackbird piece. I did it over 1 on 28 ct. and am ready to continue pieces over 1 for a while. It sure makes it possible to display more when most pieces end up being tiny. This one measures almost 4 x 8 which isn't really tiny but it was charted to be 7 x 15.

Don't forget to floss

Just finished up this quick stitch. I needed some more instant gratification. I have several large projects going and love doing them all but just needed a quick start to finish.

Progress on a WIP

I have finished page 5. I have 4 more full pages and 3 1/2 small pages and this baby will be finished. At this point I will be finishing up my 2nd full skein of SNC Acorn Woods after having started with a partial skein...I have 3 more to use so I think I will be fine on skein count.

A finish

Just put the last stitches in this a few minutes ago. Lots of frogging on the house...two colors were too similar so it didn't have the patchwork look it was supposed to have. Left the L-P row as is...see, it's close to the Q-U color. Guess it was just my dye lots.  Not sure if I like the 'a' on weathered. I first thought it was a misspelling...may go back and change that.

More fall

 Here is my finish from over the weekend. The leaflet shows the individual ones centered on a fabric pumpkin but I think I am going to try that with the 4 square. I left off the outer border and switched out the purple on 2 squares as I ran out after the first purple border.
