Blessings Be Thine - Finished!

I finished "Blessings Be Thine" © Blackbird Designs for Christmas a few days ago.
This is stitched on 40ct linen, and I realised that I like to stitch on 36/40ct very much!
It was so fun to stitch this design, this is so beautiful, isn't this?

I added my initials and there was also a part where I had to stitch something alphabet, so I stitched my husband and son's initials (A and T) on it.


Sorry again, these photos don't show the linen colour justice at all...
I would like to take accurate photos of this and
Quaker Faith Hope Love, when they are framed.


Here is my favourite part, tulip? a lily of the valley? I don't know what flower it is, but I love this pretty flower very much!


Some friends asked me where I purchased this design, so here is some information.
This design was published in 2005, and I think this is no longer to be sold now...
But I ordered it this year at
Attic Needlework in the US, I also asked her to kit up for this design.
I hope this small information would be helpful a bit for you.

I have so many e-mails that I have to reply back, please my friends just wait for me for a while.
I will make some time to reply you back.


Take care and thanks for visiting!
And happy stitching~ :)

Beautiful finish, Yuko! Its really a shame that some of these lovely BB designs go out of print and are so hard to come by. Is there another Blackbird Design coming up for you?

Your site inspires me so much! Your finished design is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing it with us and the shop you received it from. Ever since you showed it to us the first time, I have been looking for the pattern but it is very hard to find! Keep your happy spirit and keep sharing it with all of us out here in cyber-space!

Gorgeous finish! Congratulations. 40 count linen. Wow! That must have taken quite an effort. Isn't it very tiring to your eyes? I've yet to venture beyond 32 count. Maybe someday soon...

Yuko,
It's a beautiful finish and I love the colors. My stitching friend introduced me to 40 count a few years ago and I loved it! My other favorite is 36 count.
The personalization on this piece is special.
Keep stitching!

Wow Yuko,
It's beautiful. It has a warm and merry Christmas feel to it and will look wonderful when you have it ready to display. I love stitching on 36 and 40 count and use it more and more. The Vintage pear colour is perfect.
Warm hugs, Angela

Nadia said...

Good morning Yuko,
congratulations for your beautiful blog and your great work of stitch!
First of all sorry my bad english....
I'm stitching the same BBD, can I ask you how much threads red/cranberry have served you?
I have the impression that the two requested is not enough.
Thanks and see you soon
