A Finish: Lovebirds!

Hello Everyone!
Here's the Finish I promised you in the last post! It is called Lovebird Pair and is designed by Jenni Mills and the chart was published in The World of Cross Stitching (issue 199). I stitched it as a 50th birthday present for my very good friend's husband:)
This is a picture I took before I removed the stitched guide-lines and before I added... friends' names and the Swedish words for 'Forever', and and washed, ironed and framed it:

I really enjoyed stitching this motive with all its bright colours, and the black backstitching really made the design stand out:)
My friends seemed really happy with the picture and made plans to hang it in their living room:))
Happy Stitching!


  1. That's so sweet of you. Love how you finished it off and personalized this beautiful pattern:)

  2. Beautiful :). I love the swirling tails.

  3. They are very sweet and perfect for the occasion :)

  4. Gorgeous! I('m flapping my arms over here, if you can't see it...:)

  5. Annie your lovebirds are just lovely!


Reading your lovely comments truly makes my day, so thank you!
