Blackbird Sampler -- Finished!

Blackbird Sampler is finished! I crossed the last stitches about 1:00 a.m.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I've had it in my "to do" pile for well over a year now. I was always certain I wanted to use Vikki Clayton's Inky Depths silk but was just waiting for the right fabric to come along.

Violets in The Shade from Sugar Maple Fabrics fit the design perfectly. I'm very pleased with the outcome!

I hope I can get in a couple of hours on Elizabeth & The Lavender Sky today. I'd love to get the top-left corner block done.

This afternoon, we're off to the High School to put the deposit on Morgan's ring. Good grief -- how costs have risen since I bought my HS and College rings! YIKES!

But it's worth it -- and we want her to get the ring she wants. She has, after all, worked hard to earn it.
