Early in January, I started working on embellishing a piece of Cecilia fabric (from IKEA). I was inspired by the Feeling Stitchy’s August 2011 Stitch-Along. I only intended to do one bird and maybe a few highlights here and there, but I ended up doing a bird, a flower and a bunch of small leaves on a plant. I might do some more to it later, but for now I’m calling it done. I’ve framed it and it’s now hanging over the ugly telephone outlet on my wall (it’s one of those silver ones they placed at chest level in the middle of the hall).
