A Finish and I've Won!

I've a new finish to show you.  It's Margaret Sherry's free Spring Card Kit from "Cross Stitch Crazy", 
issue 163.

Mouse with Kite by Margaret Sherry
I should have stitched the grass in 1 stand of thread, but I did not like how it looked, so stitched it in 2 stands instead.

Yes, I could not believe that I had won!  
I won the  "Zoo Babies Birth Record" Giveaway from the Kooler Design Studio. 

I've stitched other things from the Kooler Design Studio in the past, they have such lovely design.  
I also have quite a few of there book's and chart in my collection.

Here's one I stitched some years ago,

- ooOoo -

I've managed to get some lovely close ups of a robin which I thought you would like to see.

European Robin
Fortunately, I had my camera with me to get these pictures.

Until next time, Happy Stitching Everyone

That mouse is just the cutest! Beautiful stitching.

Congrats on your win. I like Kooler designs too and have a number of their hard copy books on my shelf.

Nice of that robin to pose for you. I don't think I've ever seen one quite like that.

I like the grass as you stitched, with the two strands. Looks much better! Very nice stitching!

Oh I love the Margaret Sherry designs... Lovely picture of the Robins... You're a very talented photographer. If I would try to take pics so close they would end up all wobbly :)
