Anniversaries - No. 5 and Loose Feathers - No. 39

Alma has announced on her blog that Anniversaries 5 and Loose Feathers 39 (and final) will be out shortly.  The LF project is shown on the blog and there is a sneak peek of the blue house (finally, a blue house) on No. 5. 

How will I ever keep up?  And how will I ever have time for the projects other than BBD that I want to do?

Also, the Yahoo BlackBird group starts their Sumer SAL on Friday.  Not too late to sign up and work on the BBD project of your choice.  I think about 30 are signed up so far.  I'm going to stitch June Berries for the SAL.

Hope everyone can squeeze in some time for a little stitching today.  Enjoy the summer weather!

Fabric Color for Summer SAL

I have chosen to stitch June Berries for my project for the Yahoo BlackBird group summer SAL.  Haven't decided yet on which fabric to use.  I'd like to use either the blue or green; I recently stitched February Hearts on the vintage bittersweet (pink one) and am stitching Anniversaries of the Heart on bisque (off white).

I like the idea of the soft blue (misty rain) for a summer blue sky; Rose...whose judgement I totally respect...chose green (patina).  Any thoughts from out there?

Not the best color in these photos...                      no sun here this morning!

New Threads for Anniversaries-Heart

Rose and I went to Crafty Ewe yesterday to enlarge our color pallette for use on Anniversaries of the Heart...and other things, of course.  Here are the wonderful colors I brought home.  The colors please me just to look at them.

I am in the process of counting...and recounting X 3...for the skipped block (bonus pattern) in row 1, in preparation for the start of the March block.  I have completed January and February.  Will try to post a photo of those tomorrow.  This project is really fun!

Anniversaries - No. 4

If you check Alma's blog you can see a photo of Anniversaries of the Heart No. 4, Pink Hill Manor.  I think this is my favorite so far...just love it and the colors.  Maybe I should have waited for the dedication I used in my February block, but it's too late now!  This should be in shops in a week or so. 

After tomorrow (madly reading my selection for our book club that meets then) I'd better get going on finishing February.  Then at least I'll be working on March when April comes out.

How is everybody else coming on their Anniversaries piece?
