March Pinterest challenge by the Pin chicks


Another month and here we are with this months challenge piece,  This was a free embroidery pattern on Pinterest,  so the colours and work was all mine,  here is a link to the pattern.
I used 19 different colours,  and the stitches I used were,
                       Lazy Daisy Stitch
                      Stem Stitch
                      Satin Stitch
                      Blanket Stitch,
                      Some straight stitching
                      Long and short stitching
                      Plus I put a bead in each flower on her chest
She's on a pierce of fabric,  not made up my mind what I will do with her,  but I have a feeling its going to walk in the direction of one grand daughter.
I do hope you like her,
Please pop over and see what the other pin chicks have been doing here is the links to their blogs
Suzanne,   Carollyn,   Muskaan  and Imoshen
Everyone works hard every month so we all welcome comments from our visitors.
Until we meet again


  1. Wonderful job Margaret! It is so cute:)

  2. WooHoo ! You have been working hard ! I'm sure the recipient will treasure your little bird :-)
    It also reminds me of an Asterix story with a bird following & falling in love with a legionary saying toowhit toowhoo ... that's what my reaction is too :-D

  3. Owls always catch my eye, and yours is wonderful! I love all the colors you've chosen.

  4. This is beautiful Margaret. You are one very talented lady with all the crafts that you do so well. It is such a long time since I did any embroidery. I wish I had 25 hours in a day.
