Tulip Border


The May st0cking from Blackbird Designs is called Tulip Border. Only two colors, but very pretty, and stitched on my tea-dyed linen. :)) I am really liking how the fabric looks with these little stockings.

So far, I have done one stocking from each leaflet. It would have been nice to have 36 little stockings at the end of the year. But, I know me....they would never get done. So I set a goal to stitch at least one. I'll still have twelve stockings (hopefully) at the end, which really isn't too bad. ;)

This is a scanned picture of the stocking. I did leave it rather large when you click on it, since I wanted to let you see how the fabric looks...(c'mon Gabi - you can do it!)

The stocking is really pretty. I haven't been a big fan of them, but this one has changed my mind.

Such a pretty stocking. I held off from buying this, but maybe I'm going to have to now.

Ohhhh....this is again so beautiful. Stitching AND fabric.
I'm actually quite insecure when it comes to trying that on my own. I don't have much in plain white anyway.

Your flowers look very pretty on your fabric : nice idea :-))
