Over the weekend I've been stitching some birthday cards for family and friends who have birthdays around this time.
For my wonderful sister I stitched this card...
...and from a dear friend I made this card:
Both charts are from Enjoy cross stitch hearts & flowers (Spring 2012).
From Enjoy cross stitch House to home (Spring 2013) I picked this chart...
...and turned it into a card for an animal lover. I'm sure the recipient loves bees too lol.
I also stitched this freebie bookmark...
...from Cross Stitcher issue 269 as a birthday gift for the same animal lover. And I know for a fact that she had a pet bird at one time lol:)
I often find that I'm close to running out of the provided threads when I stitch freebies, but in this case I'm pretty sure that I have enought threads left to stitch the cute bird design once again:) And since it was a fun stitch, I'm sure I will!
Although I have one more gift to work on, I must get back to the PS Santas. My Santa stitching buddy Gominam is speeding along with hers so I need to catch her up lol. Check out her wonderful progress while I get going on mine:)
