Six-Inch Q-Snap



Last weekend I visited my LNS for supplies (but no new stash) and found a 6" Q-snap, which is just right for small projects. I figured I'd work on these little things when I was too busy or distracted to work on a larger project. The one on the top is Valerie Pfeiffer's Chick Berry.

But what's the one on the bottom? I'm going to let you guess, and I'll trot it out as it progresses. I'm stitching it on 32 ct linen, using one strand of Sampler Threads Raven over one. The chart called for ST Black Crow, but my LNS was out of that. The difference between them is that Raven has a faint tinge of green, while Black Crow has a faint tinge of blue.

I love those berries, they look good enough to eat. Hmmm, I will have to think about what the bottom pic could be. Ann.

Your chickberry looks great - I love the colors in those berries. Hmmm....what could it be? A lot of people were stitching Miss Mary Mack in Black Crow lately...hmmm...will have to think about it.

I love your Chickberry. I wonder what the bottom one is? It will be fun to watch.

Well this morning, I thought I had another guess - Honest, Kind and Good - but now I think that's wrong based on the thread you're using. I think that one calls for Au Ver A Soie Noir.
