Out of order

13 days into the year and 4 finishes!

Of course I posted my 2nd finish on Jan 2... so here's my 4th finish.

Isn't he cute?
Mill Hill Birdhouse Charmer
I love the fact that there are birds on this design.
I just love birds.

So without further ado,
finish #1

Mill Hill Treasured Holiday Sampler "Crystal Hearts"

This one was fun to stitch because of the variety of stitches
.. that and all the beads :)

And here's finish #3

Bent Creek (gasp, I know NOT a Mill HIll), "Snow is in the Air"

ehem, with a few changes

snowflakes are stitched with Kreinik, sparkly white cord

I think I need to use more Kreinik this year. It's so easy to substitute
it for an existing colour on a pattern

more snowflakes...button nose, beads on face

beads for border, tassels on scarf and hat...

and "I Love Snow" , with heart button 

You did see the birdie didn't you?

hmmm.. maybe the start of a theme for the year 

and for this month?
I guess you'll just have to wait and see.

Those are great finishes. Love the mix of stitches and beads - and buttons.
