She Feeds Them Well

Stitched on 40 ct Cedar Plank
One over one with a little 'tent stitch' throw in there.
I changed a lot of my floss colors, but I wrote the changes down so if you have a question about a color you can ask.

Can I tell you that I enjoyed every single stitch of this piece. It was so fun to stitch and see all the little birds come to life. One of the color changes I made was the shirt. I wear brown a lot (it's one of my favorite colors) so I made her shirt brown instead of the striped blue and white.  I also made my grass a bit greener. When I started this piece, I was missing Spring and all the green that comes with it.

Here ^^^ , you can see a bit of the 'tent stitch'. It is in the little plant with red circle flowers and a little brown bird sitting on top. It is stitched one thread crossed over one thread... and on 40 ct!  It was a little tedious at first but then it kind-of grow on me. I love the way it turned out.

This is so pretty, Amy! I really like the color changes you made, your piece seems much more vibrant and colorful than the original, good choice! I'm also loving this new, sunnier weather and already planning camping & picnics as well!

It looks like Spring has sprung in your part of the world! I love the project you have done and I think the color changes are just right.

I am envious of your cherry blossom - that seems so far way from us here in Michigan that's for sure! Wonderful stitching too, the colors pop out so well and I love how you personalised the shirt!
