Another JBW finish

Hello everyone!
Oh my - time is flying by. I meant to post last week...bur life got in the way.
Then this past weekend we took advantage of the nice weather and spent most of our days cleaning up the gardens and lawn. Amazing how many tree branches and limbs were down.

Here is my finish for the week:
© 2009 JBW Designs
Fence Tree from Christmas Tree Collection IV
Fabric: 28ct Fairy Dust
Threads: WDW
Mill Hill Beads

Stitch Count: 30 x 36, 2 over 2

 Don't you just love the cardinal at the bottom of the tree? Well- look who visited this week. Our cardinals are back...and yesterday we saw a few goldfinches.

Still waiting for the hummingbirds to come. It's still a bit too cold for them. We usually don't see them until the 2nd week in May - but I heard they are early this year.

I've been stitching away on my exchange piece. I had started in early April before I got my partner's info, but once I did, I decided on something else that was more suitable. It took a week to get my fabric and a few missing  threads so I've been stitching away (since April 19th) trying to complete my project as it has to be mailed out by the 8th of May. I still have about 600 stitches still to complete...

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Nice ornament finish! Love the cardinal picture too.
