First finish of 2009!

I started stitching this little piece on New Year's Day while watching the Winter Classic hockey game....seemed appropriate as the teams playing were the Redwings and the Blackhawks! It is by Praiseworthy Stitches and is called Winter Bird Delight. My friend Meredith gave it to me last year, as I was drooling over her kit...(it comes with Crescent Colors threads, and you supply the fabric)....I saw her WiP over the holidays and pulled it out to start as soon as I got home. I had some opalescent fabric from Silkweaver that was a good color too. It's wonderful to have Stash!

Made a few minor changes to the backstitching and charted my own initials. I think it turned out very nice!


  1. This turned out beautifully! The fabric was just made for it. Congrats!
    OK - now where's my pic of Holland so I can drool some more??? LOL

  2. It's gorgeous Kathy. So lovely.

  3. Oooo, so pretty. Birds are one of my favorite subjects! This turned out so very nice!
