Monday with blackbird designs

I made some progress on the Summer SAL today. It is another fun stitch. This is the before and below is where I ended up at the end of the evening. I love the colors and the higher count fabric (28ct) makes it go faster. The second picture has a truer color than the before but still not quite accurate.
 I made some progress on the birthday stitching as well.
 I finished another book on tape while I was stitching today. It was a reread of The Secret of Chimney's by Agatha Christie. I really need to get some new books to listen to. I am now listening to Diane Mott Davidson's Sweet Revenge again. It is cute and worth a second run but would like something new to listen to. Will have to check out the online offerings. All for now.
I hope your day is full of stitches. Marjo


  1. Your stitching is coming along very nicely, Marjo. All I can think about when I see it is John Mellencamp's "Little Pink Houses" song. That'll be running thru my head all day!

  2. Hello Marjo, you did a nice start on this Summer Sal....and I like the fabric color you chose for this design which is "beneath the sky" , isn'it ???
    Have a very nice day full of stitches,

  3. I love the colors in this one! So pretty!

  4. This is looking so pretty! I love how fast a project goes on 28 count. Must be getting old, because my last 2 projects were on that, and it was thrilling to see how fast they went!
    Love your other pictures and posts too. I've missed too many!

  5. I love this design so much and you're making great progress on it!
