Brand New

Friday, December 12, 2014



Since the very beginning of Blackbird Designs, Barb’s mother, Leona, has been there to help with our projects and make sure we meet our deadlines. She probably feels like she’s  sewn on a million yards of binding in the middle of the night!

From applique to pincushions and more, she’s done it all with good humor and kind reassuring words.

Barb used the wooden box by Stephanie Elmer of Lone Elm Lane to frame the piece celebrating her mother. The Queen Crown Box has a design area of 6" x 6".

 Inside the box is a wooden insert, just right to hold these two pinkeeps.

The pattern has just been printed and I'm picking it up today. It wiill ship out to our distributors on Monday and will be in your local cross stitch shop soon!

I've been terrible about posting to this site. Barb and I are just busy... busy... busy! We are finalizing everything for a new quilt book which will be out this spring. My studio room is torn up. I decided to remodel right before Christmas and trying to get ready for the holidays. The fun never ends here.

Will post more soon!!!

Until later,

Alma

    2. Hopefully soon! It's my fault and not Barb's. Just want to be clear about that. Right now, I'm trying to get a quilt ready for our next book. After that, I'll get it done.

  5. I miss your posts! It was always fun when you posted to see your Christmas cookies and things you were crafting. Glad you take the time to post what's new with your quilting and stitching.
