    I finished this counted cross stitch pattern of a pair of Bluebirds on their nest box with a nestlings peeking out of the hole a few days ago. I hope you all like it.

    Very nice, Renee! I don’t have enough patience (or good enough eyesight) for anything like this, but I know some find it relaxing. Great job! :wow:

    Thank you Cher. I am probably going to have to give up doing cross stitch as my eyesight is not as good as it use to be.

    Very nice, Renee! I used to do a lot of cross stitching, then as does happen, my eyes didn’t want to adjust as well, so I quit. Is this done on regular cross stitch weave, or on linen, which is VERY difficult (this was my last project when I quit). Do you have a pattern for this still? I would love to give it one more try, as I actually have one wall in my family room dedicated to birds & flower pictures, and this would really finish up the arrangement. If you do, send me a personal message or something.

    Carol, Thank you, I believe it was done on an evenweave linen, as it was not an Aida cross stitch fabric that’s for sure. This was the first time I ever did something on that kind of counted cross stitch fabric. I’ve always used Aida fabrics before and I believe it did take me longer to do it than it would have on an Aida fabric. I had to count the little holes to make sure all my stitches were right. I doubt I’ll ever do something on that stuff again.

    Yes, I still have the pattern as I bought this as a kit on ebay.

    Thank you Tammy, I use to do a lot of it too but haven’t in a long time and saw thing and thought it would look nice. Now I just have to get around to having it framed.

    Renee – I have found several patterns on the web but have not purchased any yet. I prefer to get just a pattern, as I have TONS of different thread to use up. Yes, linen is very difficult to work on but is very beautiful.

    At the time I bought this there were a couple of other people selling that were as high as $69 for the pattern kit. I bought one that was half that plus shipping. There was a nicer quality one (same thing but more detail) by a different company that was $119 but that one was too much for my budget.

    Did you say you were going to make us all one, Renee? I thought for sure I heard you say that. :ROFL: Where’s all of our laughing emoticons?
