Getting the hang of it!

As you know finishing isn;t really my strong point but I have started to get the hang of it and I have found my last few finishes not too stressful. Sorry this little pillow is the one that I can;t find the link to the freebie chart from. I am still hopeful someone out there will recognise it. (Thanks to Mylene we now have the link to this design and some lovely other ones at

This was the first freebie design that I stitched this month. The chart is from The Sampler Girl. I loved how the design fitted perfectly on a nice piece of banding.


This freebie can be found at http://cargaudlabrico.canalblog.com/archives/2009/01/index.html . The chart suggests that you stitch the whole piece with the one colour of thread but I wanted to define the birds. I think it turned out okay.
Two of my mindess cancelled today so I only had one child I had to drop off at school so I now have a free afternoon. I really need to go catch up with some emails and then get off here and stitch but I start browsing blogs and all those great overseas online stitchy shops looking at all that great stash that I so want to have. I just need to find an extra job to pay for it all...lol. Hugs!

I love the birds and think they look great in a different colour.

Your pieces turned out great, I love the birds being a different color so that they stand out a little.

Lovely job of the stitching AND finishing!! I hate the finishing, and am no good at it. I'd pay to get things finished if I could only afford it, lol!
