SMO Four Season Fatties SAL Summer Block Finish

Have a one day start and finish. It's part of the SMO Four Season Fatties SAL. Sandy posted Summer and I managed to get it done in one day. I am really enjoying this SAL and I will admit to camping the board looking for Sandy to post it. Hey, it's not very often you look forward to Mondays, yea?

Anyhoo, here's my work for this afternoon. It's hot off the Q-Snaps (like, literally 2 minutes ago that I put the last stitch in! :P). I was lazy and used a button for the birds, but I like the way it turned out. I will probably stitch this again, and when I do, I will probably stitch the birds in the nest. :)
