Progress Report – Birds in the Bower

Hello Stitching Friends

I do hope you all enjoyed the Easter break as much as I did. I adore this time of year, after the long hot summer it’s such a relief to enjoy the abated heat and the cooler evenings. I’ve been making slow but steady progress on with the Birds. Lots of colourful plumage! A bit fiddly with the constant colour changes, but a really interesting piece.

Not far to go now. Just a few more birds to stitch, and the poem. Can’t say I’m looking forward to the over one on 32 count.

Happy Stitchng (:smile:)
