Thanksgiving and Blue Bird finished

This is Thanksgiving week and I am so thankful for my friends and family. I am thankful for all of you who visit my blog too, it makes it fun to write when you know someone is taking the time to read what you have to say. Anytime you would like…chime in, just leave me a comment. If it’s a question I will try and answer you quickly and if I don’t know will ask around and see what I can find out for you.

The last thing I needed to do was fill in around all the flowers that have empty canvas threads showing with the Silk ‘n Ivory. I need to block and finish finish. I 2015-11-24 BB b stitchesdon’t think that will happen until after the first of next year.

I looked at all the pieces and decided that even though there are a few ribbon stitches I really
reverted back to the tried and true French Knots, Satin Stitch 2015-11-24 BB alland Woven Stitch. Stitches I was familiar with and could do without much though. Ribbon work with Silk Flowers I can see is going to take more study.

This is the time of the year I begin to reflect on what I have and have not done this year. And so far my incomplete pile is growing larger than my completion list. I have gotten many needlepoints pieces stitched, just haven’t finished them up. Maybe this will be my goal for 2016… I’ll have to give this some thought.

For now I will leave you with pictures of a few of my completed birds fitting for this week. May you and yours have a great Thanksgiving. I hope your holiday will be joyful and merry and safe.

I was taught that everyday you should learn something new, so I consider myself a needle artist in training. I may have more experience than some but I know there are needlepointers out there who have forgotten more than I will ever learn. I am a member of the American Needlepoint Guild (ANG), have completed the Fellow Level of ANG Teacher certification and am a member of TNNA. I also love to stitch using my computer...I do stitch diagrams for national teachers, needlework shops and my own business sd designs. In my other life, I am a wife, mother of 3 sons & GRANDmother to nine GRANDchildren (only 3 girls here too).

  1. The bird looks really pretty. It will be fun to see it all put together! Are you going to do the finishing on it yourself?
