Big Bird


No sign of the Kreinik I am waiting on for Halloween Fairy, so I went back to work on Katrina's neighborhood round robin. Someone asked what design this is. I had chosen not to say it when I started, but alright, I will share now. It is a portion of The Farmer's Wife by Barrick Samplers. Katrina listed CHS as one of the designers she likes, and since Barrick Samplers became CHS, I figured this would count. The chart is done up in drabs, browns, olives, terra cottas. Katrina sent her own skeins of DMC in her chosen color palette for her RR (smart idea!), and I am having fun making this drab chart into a very colorful house and garden... with a big bird ;-) I know my house is a little smaller than the others on the RR. I was going a little nuts finding a bigger one that I liked. But I have plans... this is going to work out... you'll see ;-)

I hope I didn't offend you by asking you what design it was. If I did, I apologize. It was looking so beautiful and I really liked it. - The "someone"

What a lovely RR - I do like the beetle in the top left corner and "your house" looks great - can't wait to see what your plans are though

I like your block so far. That big bird is the best! :)

The whole neighbourhood looks lovely. Not all houses are 'big' in a RL neighbourhood and your choice is great!

Annemarie said...

It's already working out, Carol, your house and garden look delightful. Katrina will be very happy :o)

Hello there Carol!
I am slowly getting back online... (but hush! I am taking it one step at a time and may not be commenting on many blogs to start with...)

You seem to have been stitching loads of beautiful pieces. I love your Halloween Fairy :)

Hope you received my little package in time for your birthday :) and that your birthday was a good one this year!

Love and hugs to you!

Katrina's RR is looking fabulous!

Katrina's RR is one of the prettiest (imho) on Hello Neighbor...I just really LOVE that big tree - trunk tree...I think it is from one of the LHN patterns, but I just love it. And you're right the color idea is a GOOD ONE!

Katrina said...

Carol, I love it already, the bird is fabulous and the house is perfect ;-).

The organizer of the first round robin I ever did suggested we all chose colors to work from. She also had us send very specific instructions so that we ended up with a piece we would love. I've approached every round robin the same way ever since.

The RR looks very pretty, I am looking forward to seeing your part done.

Joke said...

You make me curious, but I like it already the way it is :)

Maria said...

You've been busy, everything looks great! Good idea for RR too.

Beautiful! I had fun choosing colors out of Katrina's stash too!
