Well…I didn’t finish in time for Christmas. I guess I let myself get too distracted by other things :o( My daughter is not disappointed, but I am.
Some progress on the bird and the flower.
I worked on the hat for a little bit. Almost done with the bird and started the flower.
A little more time was spent. Truly this is a slow and steady project!
Another fun stitching art that I enjoy immensely is cross stitch. I made a very time consuming cross stitch Christmas Stocking for my oldest daughter last year and have been working on another one for the next oldest daughter. I set it aside for a bit to work on various other projects, but have recently picked it up again to try to finish before Christmas this year.
This is how far I had gotten before I started stitching this afternoon.
I decided to work on this little bird – I like to finish different motif’s and then do the backstitching on them right away. Since backstitching is NOT my favorite thing to do, I try to get as much done as I go as I can.
This is what the little bird looks like now after about an hour of stitching. Not too much to go before I can backstitch him. Isn’t he so cute?!
