Goldfinch Card

Design: Goldfinch
Designer: Not known, from a British Cross Stitch magazine of the 90s
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 28 count evenweave

This card is a companion piece to the card I gave my dad for his birthday, but this time it was Father's Day.

Goldfinches are another bird that flock to my parents' garden - drawn by the seeds they put out, and the sheltered spot they have, with plenty of trees and shrubs. I love finches, they are so perky and cheerful!

I have two more birds stitched up, so that is next year sorted... (Lord willin' an' the creek don't rise...LOL)

OMG, my best friend always used to say that (Lord willin' and the creek don't rise). What a flashback to loads of great times the two of us had together!

Your goldfinch card is so cute. :D

This one's lovely. I hope your dad appreciates it.

I had a visit to the x-stitch shop when my mom was visiting last month. Spent a bit of money, but haven't stitched anything yet. I got a dog one that reminded me of Henry, so as soon as I find the right Weeks/Sampler Threads, I'll be starting it.

Oooh, that's pretty! I'm doing a goldfinch CS design as well, here and there in between stitching gifts.=) Might even finish it this year.....
