Here is my new start for Thanksgiving, this is Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs. I didn't used to be someone that needed to mark an occasion with a new start but I was ready for a new project so saved it for Thanksgiving day.
I'm stitching this with silks on 36 ct. Vintage Navy Bean linen by Lakeside linens. I originally purchased this as a silk conversion but changed three of the four colors to suit my tastes so I think I'm calling it my own conversion now. So, since I was playing with colors and ripped a brown and a gold before settling on this combination I needed to do more than just the border. I'm happy to have done so too, it's fun to work on the motifs as well as the border.
I will probably continue like this, working to finish the border but popping in some motifs from time to time too.
I hope that everyone reading this had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My parents were in town for a few days over the holiday and we had a really nice visit and holiday weekend! I just didn't even think about taking a photo of us all together! Oh well! Thanks for dropping by, I'll be back with more progress soon!
