Autumn Bird - finished!

Good morning all!

With so little left to stitch I think it was quite obvious it wasn't going to be too long before this little birdie was completed. I had a 'spare' evening before starting my weekend new start (and didn't want to get Hogwarts out for just one day) so decided to work on this piece until finished.

He was the third of my Summer Of New Starts binge and I left him like this:

Now he's been given the rest of his wings:

Bird by Hobikolik (etsy)
Stitched on 16ct Peach Cobbler over-dyed aida by 2 over 1
Stitched in Threadworx 1076 Honky Tonk
Stitch count 80 wide by 80 high
Started - 3rd August 2019
Finished - 23rd August 2019
Total stitching time - 7 hours 45 minutes

I'm really pleased with the way he's turned out. I have the fabric and the cord so now all I have to do is FFO him. I've got a few pieces piling up in my Box Of Shame but hopefully he won't be in there too long.

Take care,
Rachel x

Always enjoy reading your blog, especially how detailed you are and how much effort you put into each post. May I ask a question? What do you use to track your time on each project? Is there a special app you would recommend?

Cathy said...

Yay! I knew you'd get it done sooner rather than later!

I knew you'd be able to finish this little guy soon, well done!

A very elegant finish. I look forward to seeing him FFO x

He looks great and I am sure he will be FFO's by the 10th.
