Bump the BAP!

Well, I've decided to ignore the BAP for awhile.  I'm planning to take it to the I35 Stitchtogether on Saturday and work on the never-ending border, so I'm not completely ignoring it.  Maybe absence will make the heart grow fonder.  ;-) 

I'm now stitching on "America" by Blackbird Designs.  The cover model was stitched on 10 count Betsy Ross linen which I do not have in my stash.  So I decided to stitch it on a piece of regular linen that I do have in my stash.  I chose to use 32 count Exemplar by Lakeside Linens.  I ended up changing a few colors to more suit the linen.  Those cover model pictures on patterns never seem to match "real life" do they?  Oh well.  That's why I have a whole set of DMC to pick and choose from.  And so far, it is a joy to stitch; great colors, easy pattern, and NO confounded confetti stitches!
