Blackbird’s Winter Delivery by Blackbird Designs is #5 in the Loose Feathers series. Behind the blackbird is a rather sparse Christmas tree with a star on top. It is now OOP. It had never really appealed to me in the past but the more I saw the finished stitched pieces, the more I liked it. So I finally decided it was one I had to stitch. Since it is not a chart I own, I borrowed it from a fellow stitcher.
The recommended fabric is 28 ct. Cranberry Bog by R & R Reproductions which is no longer available. But I had a piece of 16ct Aida from Nancy Turner. that I thought would work. The closest DMC color looks like 3806.
I used the recommended floss: Gentle Art (GA) and DMC
- DMC 310
- GA Tin Bucket
- GA Dried Thyme
- GA Harvest Basket
- GA Dark Chocolate
- GA Flax
- GA Cherry Bark
- GA Chamomile
- GA Sarsaparilla
- GA Straw Bonnet
- Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads #02045
I will probably finish them as small pillows but for now they reside in the finished projects drawer.
