Tweet! Tweet! Two fabulous three-dimensional birds just flew in from the finisher! They are from Labors of Love. I stitched the woodpecker all in Balger for a totally sparkly effect. Regina, who writes stitch guides for The Point of It All, did her chick a dee in velvet–it’s so soft and lovely.

Check out the Labors of Love website to see their whole collection of birds.

Happy stitching,

Happy Easter!

Birds of a Feather Toile Rabbit

Wishing everyone a happy Easter today! Here is an adorable Birds of a Feather canvas I stitched this summer:

It also comes in two other color ways:

Birds of a Feather Toile Rabbit in Black

Grace, one of the TPOIA girls, stitched this canvas and used a terrific herringbone fabric for the set in…it looks awesome!

The stand up bunnies from The Collection are also adorable:

Molly, another one of the TPOIA girls, just finished a darling little bunny.

Associated Talents and Labors of Love also make wonderful Easter canvases…have fun looking at their webpages!

Happy Easter; happy stitching,

Blue Bird of Happiness

 Check out my finished Blue Bird of Happiness! Actually it’s a Blue Jay but let’s not get technical. Labors of Love (check out their website) makes these wonderful three dimensional birds. Each bird comes with two canvases (front and back) and feathers and a clip. It didn’t take long to stitch. I used all basket weave and mostly metallics.

We will be doing a Labors of Love trunk show in May 2012.

Happy stitching,
Susan
