Crazy January Challenge 2011 Day #5

Blackbird Designs Hedgerow Birds
Week Dye Works 20 ct Straw
Called-for GAST & CC threads

Here is my new start for day #5 of the January Challenge. This photo of the fabric is pretty true to the actual color. It is the called-for fabric in the pattern, but look how gold it is compared to the fabric in the picture on the cover. I like this color-it is just different from what I expected. OK-I'll keep an open mind :)

Harmien said...

What a great line-up you have so far!!

Brigitte said...

And another great start. Do you know that I could take over your list without hesitation? Good that I have already posted mine on my blog, if not I'd certainly think about chnages, lol.

Would you believe I took this one out to put on my 'to-stitch' pile yesterday! Starting today :o)
I really love all of the projects you have going, Teresa!

Looking good so far, the fabric colour is lovely and warm

Virpi said...

Another beautiful start. I like the ones you have started so far...

Shari said...

very pretty!!! I love it thus far....I have a lot of BBD...need to get back to them too! Oh, for more time to stitch!!!

Another nice start, with a lot of progress actually! How long did this take you? I am sure if I were doing this challenge you would only see a scattering of stitches on the first day.

I hate when I go with the recommended fabric (which I nearly always do) and it ends up not looking like I thought it would. I usually fall in love by the end though because the stitching overtakes the fabric, as it should.

Love this design. I've never stitched on WDW linen, do you like it?

I just love all of your starts! We totally have the same taste in designs and designers. :) I will enjoy seeing your progress on all these pretties!
