Blossoms & Blackbirds - Finish!

I just finished Blossoms & Blackbirds!  It took me 5 days (started Sunday June 3rd, finished Thursday June 7th).  It was very simple and lovely to stitch!

It really is so Pretty!  I would love to stitch more samplers from Little House Needleworks!

Blossoms & Blackbirds - New Start

I have been working on a new & adorable project for the last couple of days.  It's called "Blossoms & Blackbirds" from Little House Needleworks.  I just ADORE their designs!!! I have a few patterns from them, and I decided to start with this little one:

I am having such a Super Fun time stitching this one!  I am using a 28 count linen in off white.  This pattern uses DMC floss and I am stitching with 2 strands over 2.  Here is my progress after one day:

... and after two days:

It is SO CUTE!!! (sorry about the hoop marks)
I can't wait to finish this one!  It will be so lovely!!!

The Raven WIP

Here is a WIP of The Raven I had started last month.  I have completed the bottom half:

The little design under the writing looks bluish in the photo, but in actuality, it's gray. 
I had some trouble while working on the letters... I made a mistake, and had to undo what I had stitched (about 2 letters).  Also, I received a cortisone shot in my right arm, which gave me a lot of pain for about 3 days.  So progress has been quite slow.  Nevertheless, I think it's coming out pretty cute!
