Migratory Bird Day
Just finished making some adorable robin cross stitch designs for Migratory Bird Day this Saturday! (MOMS GET IN FREE for the entire day too!)
I bought all the materials to make kits for a cross stitch station, with a bird theme. I got the pattern from birdcrossstitch.com, which is a site for simple, free cross stitch patterns.
I made one with a hoop frame, and one with a fringed edge. For beginners, I wrote the pattern directly on the fabric. I left some blank for people who wanted to do counted cross stitch instead.
I normally choose very complicated projects that take me months to do. So being able to complete a cross stitch project in 15 minutes flat was a rare treat for me!!
