Moonlit Garden ~ finished!


I got stuck into the rest of the wording last night. My Moonlit Garden I finished at 12pm! I didn't want to leave it until today to complete, so I persevered. A happy dancing I am doing ~ ~ ~

DESIGNER ~ Blackbird Designs
PATTERN ~ Moonlit Garden (Loose Feathers #22)
FABRIC ~ 30ct Broomstick Brown
THREADS ~ Weeks Dye Works (2 over 2)
STARTED ~ 25 April 2009
FINISHED ~ 13 June 2009

I took a while to get going on this one, which had nothing to do with the design. I love it! I didn't even get sick of doing the stars. I think I'll eventually have it framed.


I just adore the Autumn colours in it!


I still wasn't able to get the true colour of the fabric through my photos. It's almost the same as shown on the front of the chart though. A beautiful, warm tone to it, which compliments the thread colours.


I hope you've enjoyed my latest journey with me? It took a bit longer than I would have imagined, but I got there in the end. A wonderful pattern to stitch.


My next start will be the second Stacy Nash project from the 2009 Group. We'll have to see how my finishing skills turn out with this one. I haven't read through the instructions yet to see whether there's too much to it. I don't think it will be too difficult though. I'm looking forward to working on it!

I just pulled this out of drawer - I had forgotten about it - it is headed for my LNS for framing this week. It is a great pattern, as is all of Barb & Alma's work.

Jane---Just discovered your blog via Nicole's (which I just found not too long ago). I've mananged to go through all your previous posts since 2005 and I must say you take lots of lovely photos of your beautiful work. This particular finish is just lovely. Fall is my absolute favorite season and the colors in this pattern are just so pretty. I can almost feel the fall season just by looking at it! Thanks for taking the time to share your art.

This out of print pattern is a hard to find now. I don't know if you want to part with it (I can certainly understand if you don't--it's so lovely!) but should you be willing to (if you haven't already) I'd be interested in purchasing.

Happy stitching!
