scandinavian birds

hey friends!

I am taking a break from card month here to share a little bit of embroidery with you. 

About a month ago, Sara at the split stitch asked for some volunteers to help her by stitching up and photographing some patterns for her shop. I think I replied within minutes of seeing her post. What can I say, I am eager to help. Really, I just really love Sara's blog. Her work is beautiful, and she is so talented. 

Anyways, I chose the Scandinavian Birds II pattern. I love birds and knew I would have fun with these. So, here are some pictures of what I did. Go check out my post on Sara's blog to read more about it. 








I just love how they turned out, and I really love the pattern. It is only $4.00 for the pdf and you get get it here. She also listed a whole bunch of new patterns, so take a look around.

Be sure to check out the split stitch and tell Sara I sent you!

  8. Love these little birdies and that you've stitched them onto a towel (looks like a tea towel?). I like that you've stitched them on not-white...it just makes them more touchable to me! :-) So adorable!
