Small Finish!

I had to take a break from my lighthouse - too many stitches in DMC 798 and 3838! I like blue but after more than a thousand stitches - I needed something else! 

So, of course, I pick up a pattern that calls for one color of floss! lol I played with the placement of the variegation though. Not a fan of stripey stitching so I purposely made the wings and leaves the purple. And I left my initials off. 

May I introduce my latest feathered friend ~

Yellow Bird
Unknown fabric
GAST Purple Iris

A future pin cushion

When I finished this one I started Bird in Hand by BBD. I have been calling it In the Garden for some reason! And it's not red...going with GAST Peacock.

We are getting rain now and a bit of thunder - time to get off the computer!

Oh love this one. I can feel another 123 order coming my way lol! I did the Bird In Hand in a pretty blue and used it for a pillow for a dear Sister (nun) at work who always brightens my day. Can't wait to see what yours looks like!
