Birds and Blossom

These two charming parakeets were on an exceptionally beautiful tablecloth I bid for recently on eBay. It finally sold for an eye-watering £150 with 30 bidders - so I clearly had no chance!!

However, as luck would have it, a few days later I discovered a very similar pattern which I picked up for just 99p! This looks a little challenging - although its mostly satin stitch and only a few colours. If I go quiet for a while, you'll know what I'm doing!!

Here are my (quite modest!) stitcheries to date.

The bouquet of flowers is from my previous post.

And don't you think this cheeky little dog is adorable!
This pattern is available on the internet here.



  1. Love the doggie !!!! does that type of ring make it easier ??

  2. Beautiful parakeets and your little doggie is adorable.

  3. Your works are delicate and gorgeous. I love to appreciate embroidery pieces!

  4. Lovely stitching Ros and I bet you are finding it relaxing too. The budgies are lovely, look forward to seeing them stitched.

  5. I love your embroideries - I have a very soft spot for Scottie dogs, but also adore embroidered flowers, too.
