European Goldfinches

I have an exciting finish! I had to go back into my older posts to find out when I started this piece. It looks like somewhere around the end of April or beginning of May in 2012. I worked on it for quite a bit and then we ended up having a whirlwind move to Delaware in 2013, and I put it aside until recently.
 I love birds, in fact I call myself a crazy bird lady! :o ) I really enjoyed stitching this piece and I have already pulled out another bird chart from Crossed Wing Collection, and I have started stitching it.
I stitched it on 32ct Platinum linen. I am going to frame it. I am hoping to find a frame at the thrift shop and do it myself. 

I am going to give the pattern away. It is a bit wrinkled and not pristine, but definitely perfectly able to be used again. Please leave a comment and let me know if you would like a chance to win the chart. I will pick a winner in a week to 10 days. 

Happy Stitching,

Lovely stitching Heather and such pretty colours, I'd love to have a chance to win this. Hope that you can find a frame that suits in the thrift shop, Sue x

Heather your European Goldfinch finish is charming. I can see why you mentioned Cross Wing designs to me - this is truly lovely and an accurate depiction of the birds.

Oh, this is just lovely, Heather! Crossed Wing designs are wonderful, aren't they? I'm sure you'll find the perfect frame very soon :)
