Since finishing Giovanni's Alphabet, I did not really get back to my stitching for quite awhile. The prospect of going back at one of my larger projects was not appealing so I coasted. When I got back from Nashville with all these lovely small ornament type patterns I was able to stitch again.
These three red birds are from Myrtle Grace designs and were fun to work on.
This one is stitched with Valdani's new Australian Wool which I won in a draw. I wouldn't use it again but I like the bird.
This bird is stitched with white perle cotton...I love that it is so white.
I stitched this one with PB10 Treasure braid. You can sort of see the sparkles.
This is Spiral Pig from Sam Sarah designs. I am not too happy with the colour I picked for the larger wing but I do not have my full range of colours here and I had to make do.
