I finished my little Cardinal stitch. Would you believe I had no trouble placing those branches? The last Victoria Sampler birdie I did was a booger...I think the bits of snow helped me on this one. All these little guys need are beads for their eyes and finish-finishing.
Designer - Victoria Sampler
Fabric - 32 count Jobelan, tea dyed by Daffycat
Fiber - DMC
Finishing that, I was free to start Plum Street Samplers' Twelve Days of Christmas series. Here was the fabric I was going to use. A lovely 28 count black Jobelan. Shelly, of An Arizona Stitcher gifted me a 123Stitch gift certificate for guessing the artist of a song she mentioned. I used that to purchase the fabric. Isn't it gorgeous? Carol, of Stitching Dreams often stitches Christmas ornaments on black, and they look amazing. So I was going to pull a "Carol" and stitch these freebies on that dramatic black fabric.
Then, Paulette went and added four blackbirds in the Fourth Day ornament! Noooooo! I'm glad I had to wait to start stitching. Here is my start on "A Partridge in a Pear Tree" on 32 count Daffycat-dyed Jobelan.
This means I need to find more ornaments to stitch, right? I have all that fabric, after all. Thank you so much for the fabric, Shelly!
There are still quilt rows to be sewed. They are not waiting patiently. Sitting there. Staring. At me. It's a lil' creepy...
