Blue Bird cross-stitch - Day 43

The wings for the painting are still in development.
Todays extra quick craft is a little bluebird crossstitch. A friend came around and was telling me how a duck wondered into her kitchen uninvited this morning and I thought, Duck!
But... then I decided blue was calling me, so a sweet little bluebird instead. I played with Picnik's stamps for the leaf and musical notes. Even the free version of this site has some great features.

 "Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings."
Victor Hugo


  1. Makes less mess than the duck, I can tell you! Cute, but maybe not as exciting :)

  2. This is too cute. And duck-like. :o)
