Sunflower House SAL Progress 0723

Here is my progress of Sunflower House © Blackbird Designs / Loose Feathers #09, so far.
I have been very busy looking after my naughty son recently, so haven't been able to stitch at day time at all...
So only one sunflower has bloomed...


I bought this linen as 28ct, but I think this is 32ct... I don't know which is the right count, so I note it as 28ct, though...
The photos that I have been taking aren't showing the linen colour justice, but actually this linen is marbled and it looks like beautiful sky!

I like this design very much, so far it's not so bright, but it will be very beautiful at the end, I think!

Ahhh, I have so many things to do and stitch!
I will post it later, but I started another new design, am I OK???
Next week, I will meet my stitching friends again at my house!
I'm so looking forward to meeting them again!

By the way, thank you so much for leaving me lovely comments and thanks for your visit here my blog!
I'd appreciate for that!

This pattern is going to be amazing when it is finished! I agree with Ginnie, the colors are lovely and it is definitely summer-like.

Can't wait to hear about your stitching friends. They are quite a talented group of ladies!

I'm jealous of your photography skills; they are amazing!

Yuko,
It look like the sun has come out. What a happy sunny design to stitch at this time of year.
I love the colour of the house abd the beautiful contrast of the roof!.

I do not believe your perfect little boy has been misbehaving :>) He is as lively as little boys should be (this is an expression of my mother in law and she is 99 so she should know...haha)
Love Angela

Yuko - your needle is smoking! You put my Sunflower House to shame, I have not made nearly the progress that you have. Your house is lovely!!

It's looking great Yuko. Very nice colors.

Just a tip, if you're uncertain what count a fabric is and wanna know what is the actual count, get a ruler (inch measurement). Put on top of the fabric, align one hole to 0, then count the holes within 1 inch. There, you have the fabric count. HTH.

Hi Yuko, I'm a bit behind with my blogging again. I just wanted to say that your sunflower house is looking lovely.
I don't believe that your beautiful little boy could be naughty. = Sandra.

tammie said...

hiya yuko i believe your house to be just lovely and the sunflower well it definitely makes you think of summer. I know how you feel i have the four boys and some days are so quiet i can stitch and read most of the day the next day they may be so naughty that it feels like they are all gangin up on me lol...

Lillie said...

Looking very lovely...loved the summary colors.

sugardoll said...

What a lovely piece of WIP. It reminds you of summer and sunshine! It would be a nice design to hang during winter where it's cold and ugly. I hate winter LOL

Great work as usual Yuko.

The colors you are using are so pretty! You have inspired me to use more bright colors instead of sticking to the muted ones I typically use.
