My First Finish and Progress Made!

Nature's Song Exchange Piece
Stitched on 32ct. Mt. Baker Blue linen
Threads: Belle Soie silks: Blue Lagoon, Icing, and Beanstalk
Designer: Olka
Chart can be found here: Aliola's Blog,

My "He's a Flake" piece is almost finished. I changed the color of the scarf to a red because I like it better than the called for color. I'm also going to put red berries on the hat for the holly berries.

Lastly, I've done some more stitching on my incentive piece, PS's Sunflower Garden Sampler. I'm really enjoying this stitch.

Other progresses, the totato and bell pepper seedlings are doing well and we've planted our onions! Let the gardening season begin!

Your little bird is so cute! There is something about the combination of the colors that is so appealing on this piece :)

Enjoy stitching the PS Sunflower Garden sampler--it is one of my favorites. Still have to frame it, but it is such a pretty piece...

Terrific little bird finish -- love the design, the fabric, and the fiber colors! Mr. Flake needs some eyes, Stef! Super progress on your PS piece!

Glad gardening season is under! Now get those spuds planted!

Good start with the Ps design.
