My exchange to Lynda

This is a pattern I really enjoyed doing I almost wanted to keep it for myself and start another project for the Blackbird Designs Exchange, but had little time to start another exchange piece, Lynda did leave a comment that she really liked what I did for her.

The pattern is from the Blackbird Designs Thank-you Sarah Tobias booklet, the pattern is the For My Daughter I did make a few changes I put Spring 2011 and changed the alphabet a little, I used an unknown fabric I think it may be a linen type fabric, I used Cresent Colours Blue Moon, Pixie Dust, Pablano pepper and Weeks Dye Threads Honeysuckle, I used a braided pink trim for the edge, I tried many different ideas to finish the edge this just seemed to do the trick.

I have been very busy with work having three guys out one with a broken wrist, one having carpel tunnel sugery and another on vacation, so in 9 days I put in 90+ hours some days were only seven hours others were longer so the stitching had to take a back seat.

I am now working on a Up For The Challenge 15 I hope to have this finished this week sometime, wish me luck.

Blessings to you all.

You have done a beautiful piece and I am sure that Lynda is thrilled to receive it. My goodness, but you have been working so many hours. May you have some peaceful hours coming your way very soon, my friend!
