Another Little Gem

Hi everyone,

I am still slogging away at finishing my firecracker.  It's going to be wonderful when it's finished but I am so over it!  Ever feel that way about a big project?  I treat myself every other day to a TINY project - the kind that are so easy to finish!

Here's the cracker..Almost there...I may never do criss cross hungarian or any variation thereof again

And here is the little gem - took 2 days.  It's the second of the 12 days of Christmas by Rebecca Wood. For a while I thought it was #1 - shows you that I don't know my partridges from my turtle doves!  This background is at least Nobuko :)  The eye is 3 strands of black floss crossed over one thread.  Perfect!

Turtle Dove

Here is the Partridge - it's a bigger canvas so I will have this as a standup

And while I am on the bird theme, look what fell out of the tree this morning!  Now that was a lot of work!  I almost hate to throw it away.

And here's Emily- ready to get back in the water and out of the kitchen  :)

Have a great weekend,
