It's Berry Time

I got a little tired of stitching with all that green, so I decided to take a little break from "The Riddle" for a day or two. I ended up starting the new Loose Feathers by Blackbird Designs "It's Berry Time." I'm using Rouge Belle Soie silk and stitching it on 40 ct. Vintage Maritime White by Lakeside Linens.

It's Berry Time

I love the color of this silk - it has shades of red, fuchsia and pink.

  2. Nice start! I like those red/pink/purple overdyes myself! I've never used a silk one, though! :o

    As for this chart, I just don't care for it. I think the baskets look sort of "wonky"--not sure entirely what I dislike about them!

    It sure is popular, though. I'm seeing quite a buzz around it. I think it's great that there's at least SOMETHING out there that doesn't need to be added to my wishlist, lol!

  5. That is a beautiful color, Nicole. I didn't join the Loose Feathers club this year, but this one has caught my eye, especially now that I've seen your stitching on this. It looks like you've gotten a lot accomplished in a short time - flying needles!

  6. Oh wow!! I love it. I was contemplating using the bigger count suggested or trying a 40 ct, and just seeing your pic has convinced me. I LOVE the silk that you chose for it, too. Did you see Alma's post for today, with the pics of her berries? I have to stitch this one now! Lovely start, Nicole--and a nice break from all the DT greens! ;)
