Do I hear applause or groans of, “it’s about time!”? I really wish you could see this one in person because it turned out really good.
For those of you who have made it through the last two grueling blocks, this one should be a breeze! There are no specialty threads needed on this one other than the Cosmo floss but I do give you DMC substitution colors.
I am busy getting all of the printed material put together and off to the printer so the pattern will definitely be available before February 15. I am waiting for the fabric orders to come in and I will get started cutting kits and all should be ready for you soon.
Cosmo (Lecien) is moving their offices back to Japan so it may be a bit more difficult now to get the floss. I will see how it goes. The stuff is wonderful but it is a big pain in the backside to get it! I used one of their variegated colors for the lichen on the branch.
Time for another layout-to-date visual. I have added the illustration of the center Poppy block because that is next on deck as soon as the Nuthatch pattern and kits are packaged up.
I had better go out and re-fill my bird feeders. I have had so many new birds I have not seen before this winter and they are fascinating to watch and to use as live models. All I have to do is look out my sewing room window.
