Spring Birds



Hello Friends!

Took another small break from patriotic stitching to stitch "Spring Birds" from Country Cottage Needleworks. I've had this pattern in my stash for awhile now and have just not gotten around to stitching it for some reason.



When I stitched up this pattern, I left off the top and bottom and then substituted some of the colors. It ended up being smaller than I had thought so I went with a white-washed frame I had in my stash and put some coordinating blue fabric as a backing before mounting the stitched piece on top. For a bit of color, I made some cording out of a pale yellow and then made two bows (one green, and one pink polka dot) before adding a flower in the center.
