Cross Stitch Update

This week's cross-stitching projects were two-fold. First, to add a new bird (this catches me up with all the parts I currently have in this project) to the "Faith is the bird..." stitchery (though I had an email that another one has been mailed today - they are quite small sections, though, and quick to stitch). I've just realised that I forgot to give this chap an eye - I'll add that next time I stitch on it.

Then, because it wasn't the end of my cross-stitch week (the only week which ends on a Wednesday), I chose a new design to work on as my alternate (next week I go back to the Winter piece, and perhaps finish it) - a summery garden sampler. Mainly, I chose it because it was a kit rather than a chart, so I didn't need to spend time gathering resources. Lazy, I know!

Here's what the finished thing will look like (the in progress photo is not completely true to colour - it's a bit less washed out in reality). 

And, because I am really not completely lazy, I've chosen what the next project will be after I finish the Winter border, and made sure I have both canvas and colours for it!  (But you'll have to wait and see what it is...)

The birds are cute and that garden stitchery is going to be so pretty!
