A while back, I bought an issue of Cross Stitcher magazine just for the cute booklet of bonus patterns. Well, okay, for the pattern on the cover of the booklet, because I had no idea what else was in it! Yesterday I was feeling a bit bummed by my lack of progress on my large projects, and started the little birdie. Isn't he CUTE? I love the colors, and I'm going to finish him just like the cover shows, using a small hoop as a frame. :3
I changed the nest colors as the DMC selected were too green/yellow and they didn't match the cover picture. I'm using 434, 436, and 676 instead of 420, 3045, and 3046... just in case this helps someone else. :)

And a floss toss for a redo of Mediterranean Mermaid... I got some good ideas on FB of how to salvage the one I already have (too close to the edge on one side) but I still want a perfect mermaid to frame. Plus one of my good friends is stitching her too, and I can't resist a good SAL... :p
Well, back to Skyrim! Bwahaha!
