A Stitcher's Companion Completed


I love Blackbird Designs and this one was a little sweetheart to stitch. It's stitched with that new fiber I am in love with...DMC Floche in black on Belfast linen. My hubby was nice enough to make the wooden backing and I dyed it black to match.
The shoes that you see were my father's baby shoes and are one of my most prized possessions.
As always, Barbara

Hi Barbara - I'm a new reader of your blog, and have to say you have some stunning finishes! You really do do beautiful work :) Would you mind telling me which book this BBD is from pretty please? I'm not usually a huge BBD fan, but some of the 'plainer' ones like this I really love.
