Another New Start

I couldn't resist starting another new project. I have loved this one since it was released. It's "Bird in the Bower" by Plum Street Samplers.

Bird in the Bower - started 6/16/09

I am stitching it on 40 ct. Vintage Light Examplar using Needlepoint Inc. Silks. The NPI are definitely my favorite thread to stitch with lately. I would love to have a whole set.... one day.... I can dream right?? :)

This design is like chocolate for me. I don't want it to end! I love everything about it!

Well, going to get back to stitching and listening to my new favorite series of books - The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. They are so good! I wasn't so sure about them after I read the first one, but I decided to give the next one a try and the next one and now I'm hooked! Write soon!

  6. Great start, Nicole! I really love this design, too.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying the Sookie series. I'm about halfway through reading the series on my Kindle. :)

  11. Hi Nicole,
    I love your Bird in the Bower. I liked it when it came out, but seeing it being stitched makes me like it even more. And I am right there with you on the NPI silks. Love those!! I could easily stitch with only those. :) I've read the first Sookie book and thought, ehhhh. So they get better?? I have the next two. Maybe listening to them is the key. Did you know there is a series on HBO called True Blood that is based on this series of books? I haven't watched it yet. My friend said the first series season covers the first three books and I have only read one. :)
    I'm off to add Bird in the Bower to my list of designs to purchase eventually. :) Have a good day!!

  12. Nicole, your new start is great. I like that pattern too.

    I've read the first Sookie Sackhouse book too, and have the next one at home on my shelf of books ready to read.... I always have at least 6 home from the library at any given time.

    Have you watched True Blood on HBO? I've seen a couple of episodes. It's based on the books...

    Happy reading, and stitching!

  16. I love this design as well! It's looking so pretty. I wish I had every NPI color as well -- wouldn't that be wonderful? I'd actually be happy having a full set of anything. Even DMC!
