Part of a house-warming gift for my S-I-L, who is leaving her home of 27 years and moving nearly 2 hours away to where her husband’s new office is located. One of her favorite things to do is sitting on her (current) porch with a cup of coffee watching and listening to the birds as they visit all the feeders hanging in her yard. She is going to miss them very much. Her new apartment on the 8th floor has a balcony, but there are no trees near by. So, I thought I would stitch her a few bird-related items.

Here’s the tea towel I just finished using the bonus design that was offered last week from Embroidery Library (great timing!!). The towel is large (30 x 36 inches).

I am absolutely pleased with how it turned out and I hope she loves it as much as I do. Thanks for looking.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments. I also just posted some drink coasters that will go in the gift package as well. Have a look and let me know what you think.

Beautiful design and beautifully stitched out. I love watching my birds, squirrels, deer our my windows and doors. Seems I never get the pleasure of sitting on my front porch. Maybe this Spring and Summer I can stop and 'smell the roses'.
