Here's the big picture of what I've done so far. The colors are just lovely in person and I've really enjoyed stitching this.

Happy New Year!!!!
This past summer I came across a lovely design. A HUGE design with flowers and hummingbirds and butterflies. It was quite lovely. AND THEN... I saw someone's blog that was stitching it on a hand dyed fabric. And that hand dyed fabric was actually done FOR this design, by the actual designer of this lovely flower garden. http://www.crossedwing.com/
Quickly I got on the phone and called her to see if she was still doing that since this was a few years old and YES! She ordered fabric for me (a very large piece of 32 ct. linen... somewhere in the ball park of 28x50"-- did I mention it was huge?) I dont even remeber the finished size, maybe its 20x36?
Today I will show you my fabric and the design. Today or sometime this week I'll take it off the frame and snap some smaller shots and post them.
