Rose, Carol, and I were stitching together last month and out of the blue I said, "Why don't we start a little Blackbird Design (BBD) club?" I don't even know where that thought came from because I had never stitched a Blackbird Design in my life, and as my stitching friends know,
I have a strong aversion to crows in samplers. (By the way, any dark colored birds that I stitch will be referred to as blackbirds or mocking birds!)
The idea was enthusiastically received and we were on our way. What a great excuse to get together more often, enlarge our stashes, make our WIP lists longer, and, yes, complete some relatively quick, fun-to-stitch projects.
