Two More of These ____ Birds Done!

I like series. I love birds. I even love to look at these when sitting in my stitching chair. But, I MUST put these down. I have burnt out on them. My little fingers just won't do any more for awhile!


Winter and Valentine Birds
Heart in Hand
scrap aida and recommended floss
I have to share - even though I have completed several of these birds - I designed my own today - the birthday bird. CalamityJr thought there should have been 12 birds and not 11. Birthday was the only 'day' I could think of to play with. It was completely inspired by HIH and all credit goes to them for this one.

btw - ____ means stupid  --  nothing bad. I just didn't want that to be the title of the post to say something derogatory of a designer when I am the one frustrated.

Got The Raven today. And I picked out the linen. Maybe yet tonight I will pull the floss together.

Two patterns done in two days - no way I can keep this pace up! lol

Your "stupid" birds look adorable. Isn't it strange how some patterns just cause our fingers and brains to fumble the counting? LOL.

Those long-legged birds are super cute! I have enjoyed seeing them, and will probably add them to next year's rotation!! Hugs!

When will the Birthday Bird appear?

It is strange hat they couldn't come up with a bird for each month and season, isn't it?

Sarah said...

Super cute birdies!! I am amazed at how fast you stitch! Phew! Your fingers must be burning!! Can't wait to see your raven...love those and saw one at Porpoise Bay in BC just a few days ago. They are magnificent creatures!! Massive birds and you can hear them fly by!

Congrats on the stupid birds. I was imagining a much worse word there, lol. Grats on the finishes, and your needle is really smoking!! Great job!

I thought it meant Pooping Birds ;o) That's one HUGE snowman to poop out too. LOL! Congrats on two more finishes.

What, no peek at the Birthday Bird???
