While I am waiting for the 30 ct hand dyed linen to arrive for the Pineberry Lane Lydia sampler, I will be stitching smalls.  Letters and Leaves is a freebie design by La D Da, the design has been around for several years and I am just now getting around to stitching it.

I am using some 28 ct stash green/gray linen which I over dyed with my home made walnut concoction.  I am using Gentle Arts threads Black Crow and Forest Glade.  The Black Crow looks more blue than black to me.

Found some great backing fabric in my quilting sash box and I feel pretty confident I will be able to find some trim in my trim stash box.

It's a simple easy stitch, great for watching The Closer reruns.  


  1. I like what I'm seeing! Nice backing and trim too!

  2. I think it's going to be wonderful with the fabric and trim you've picked out.
