September 2011

I've completed another project - woohoo! Whittling down my 7,450,000 charts (just kidding - lol - well sorta - lol)

This is a Hinzeit block chart called Birds. My aunt had put a sun room on the back of her house last summer and at Christmas she said she loved coming into the room in the mornings - having her coffee and watching the birds. So I made this for a Christmas present for her.

This was pretty standard stitching for me - used 14ct Aida and the colors the chart suggested. Of course I added my "bling" - there is gold metallic thread in the green leaves. In the picture it's had to tell tho. The charms came with the chart. Still have to take it to Hobby Lobby to get it framed. Will get a green matte to complement the green leaves.

Hope you all like it.

It will be a wonderful gift. I did "wine" and then lost all the charms. I just purchased some more online and now I can get it "finished!"
