March Ornament



Yes, I know what you are thinking-March? But it's May. Better late than never I say. This is noel birdhouse by Brittercup Designs from the 2004 JCS ornament issue. It is missing a bird button near the opening, which I have on order. I also omitted the backstitching on the front of birdhouse as I just liked the solid red. I did it on sparkly white fabric instead of the summer khaki the pattern called for. Now, I am working on my April ornament by Heart in Hand. I hope to have that finished in the next week.

I wanted to thank everyone for those fabulous birthday wishes. It made a special day even more special. Thanks also for taking the time to stop by and visit me, I love it and appreciate each and every comment. Hope you all have a good weekend and happy stitching.

I'm glad you enjoyed your birthday so much, Sharon! This is a lovely ornament. And, as you say, better late than never. You're way ahead of me in the ornie-stitching department!

That's very cute! Is the ribbon a variegated color, or did you have to switch floss to do all those color changes?
