Christmas Bluebird

Hello friends,

this time I pulled out one of the projects that I started back in January for Debbie's Ultimate Crazy Challenge. It's a little bird and I left it here.

There were all the leaves that had to be stitched and I thought: No problem that will be done quickly. But it took me nearly the whole weekend. This morning I put in the last of the backstitches and it's done now. And I love it.

He is so cute.. Well done

Rachel said...

Adorable!!! Do you have plans on how you'll 'finish' it?

Carm said...

Very cute!

Justine said...

Cute cute cute! It's surprising how long a small area can take to stitch isn't it? Lovely finish and well worth all your hard work.

Oh, this is so very sweet and I am so glad that FF inspired you to finish such a lovely design.

Oh, I love this so much. Anything that is a mix of birds and berries is always a win in my book. And I totally understand about thinking something will be done in no time and then it takes *much* longer than I thought. Just yesterday I had the goal of finishing the first page of my HAED, thinking I could get the little corner done in about 2 hours. Well, 5-6 hours later, it was finally done!

I always have that problem.... always under-estimate how long it is going to take to stitch something!!
Well done on a beautiful finish and brilliant that you have knocked over another Jan start from the list!!
