Well it didn't take as long as I thought it would to finish so here's "My Pink Rose" all done.
However, I did discover just how dumb I can be. Let me back up some and take another picture of the entire piece of linen......
Go ahead and say it....."dang that Barbara is dumb!" LOL I couldn't believe I had done that....goes to show not to start something late in the day. However, I still love it and you'll notice I didn't put the border on and it's a good thing I didn't.
Next up I have something amazing to show you. I was at the Salvation Army the other day with John and came across a bamboo tea box. It's about 8 by 12 and about 3 inches high. Inside it is divided into 8 equal sections large enough to hold tea bags in envelopes. Well I bought it and I use it for my accessories for stitching. Then I had a brainstorm.....what if Amazon sold other bamboo boxes in different sizes....so off I went to check. What I found was this:
What you see is several different boxes that when placed together measure 15 x 15 inches. These are extremely well made and I use the lower one that measures 5 x 15 inches to hold my scissors, threads and orts when I'm stitching on something. The others I have plans for like pincushions. Also you see a round bamboo salt box that the cover slides open on. What a great ort box!!! Add a little design to the top and your in business. If interested in seeing these on Amazon, you can find them here:

Now for the giveaway.
Since I've finished with this newest of Blackbird Designs "My Pink Rose" I'm offering it up to anyone anywhere. It's small so it will fit in a little envelope and postage won't be ridiculous. Just add a comment to this post only and please post your name. It's Wednesday so how about we have it go until the race starts this coming Sunday at Martinsville.
I think this was the longest post I've done in a long time and I appreciate your patience.
Have a Blessed day, Barbara
