Was it last week I mentioned all those wonderful websites that are offering BOM's? Well, a few of us have joined them.
Little Miss Shabby is now located here: http://www.littlemissshabby.com/
After spending a night cutting all those ruddy 2 1/2" squares, I traced the pattern onto the background and then started to embroider with the numbers that were suggested. I did the birdie, I did the snowman.......oh-oh! It looked great under the Ott-Lite, but from across the room you couldn't see a darn thing. I decided to start over. I puddled the floss onto the background and tried and tried and tried. I finally settled for colours you wouldn't think would work, heck they did.
Gloria, Lynda, Irene and I have all finished our first block and more girls I know are getting started on it.
First up is Gloria's. She used 6 strands of floss and found it kind of difficult. I love the outcome of it. Gloria is using a fabric line from Moda called Girly Girl.
Next is Irene's. Only 3 strands used in this one. 30's prints like mine
And this is mine..............................you know my story.
Now for a couple of tips. I ran the photo off on a 4" x 6" index card.................the plain side and left the lined side so I could make notes. It gave me a referral point and on the back I wrote the numbers of the different flosses that I used. I stapled it to the sheets that I ran off from the website.
I've already planned that February's birdie is going to be red.......like a cardinal. I have no idea for March, but a junco would be good. Then perhaps a sparrow and a black capped chickadee. Little birds that favour my neck of the woods.
