Love birds for wedding gift

Postby tiiiiii_85 » Sat Mar 25, 2017 10:12 am

Hello everybody,

after more than a year of absence (life takes a while to resettle after a bad period) I am back with a new project. Soon a friend on mine will get married and I decided to stitch a gift. She is not geeky enough for a videogame pattern, so I bought a pattern from Etsy of 2 birds on a tree:

I chose a very simple pattern, especially because she told me in the end of January that she will get married in April. (the date is 4th of MArch because they had a private ceremony in March, but we are invited to the party in April). In the pics you can see the progress so far... I am afraid I will have to speed up a bit!!! :shock:
In the pictures you can also see my "parking" technique :grin:

I am a self learner who started stitching in high school. After years of break I am finally back to cross stitching, thanks to this forum!
Going on projects:
- Wedding birds (framing phase)
- still undecided

Finished stitching!! :D I am super happy I managed to finish it ahead of time, so I can frame it nicely and send it right after the wedding ceremony (they will go later for honeymoon).
Now it's in the blocking phase:

I really love this. It's beautiful but modern, and your stitching looks great!
I'm sure your friend will adore it.
