Their Song Finished

This was one of those projects that the closer one got to the end, the more it felt like there was a whole other project to do. Yesterday, I wasn't feeling well enough to stitch a whole lot, so today, I just sat down and hammered this one out until I was finished. I'm am so, so happy that I got the chance to stitch this one up. I am happy that I got to be on the list to stitch this one as I do not think I would ever stitch this one again. Still, in all, I do love these birds! :)

Well, at any rate. Here are my efforts: 

Design: Their Song (Chart #24 from the 2007 Loose Feathers series) 

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Harvest, Ivy League, Old Crow,
Slate, and Tulip. Gloriana Threads 12 strand French silk floss in #016 Holiday Green.

All in all this took 13 days to stitch from start to finish. I'd say that was not bad at all, yea? :)

Well, I had best be off. I need to clean up my stitching area and take a break from stitching for tonight at least. I've stitched like a mad woman today and I'd rather not get carpal tunnel if I can help it! 

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Have a good week! :)
