A Blackbird finish.............

called Rose Garden and I used some gorgeous fabrics to finish it into a pillow.  
As to what I have planned for myself in this upcoming month, I've decided to do some of these designs that I've collected from foreign countries and that's why I have a french background for my blog right now.  Most of the designs are french and I've been wanting to do these but have had others to do too so I feel this is a great way of concentrating my energies into them.  Some will be put in my store for sale and some I will be keeping for my personal collection but all of them will have a foreign feel to them.  I will be using some fibers from other countries and also some linens.  The giveaway I have planned for my birthday will definitely have a foreign feel about it....more about that later.  So I better get stitching and with each piece I finish, there will be a story about why this design was chosen.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Love your finish! You've chosen some beautiful fabrics for your pillow. I have my Rose Garden about half stitched and I'm still not sure how I'll finish it.
