Button Up Birdies Complete Series

First picture, leaflets 1-3: Chickadee, Cardinal, Tree Sparrow, Whiskey Jack, House Finch, Robin

Second picture, leaflets 4-6: Bluebird, Goldfinch, Wren, Hummingbird, Golden Crowned Kinglet, Nuthatch

Third picture, leaflets 7-9: Christmas Robin, Mama Cardinal, Oriole, Swallow, Summer Tanager, Wood Thrush

The Christmas Robin is finished as an ornament because she was first published in the 2010 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue and I stitched her then, not knowing she was the first of a series. She was re-published in leaflet #7. I'll re-stitch her at some point, as I've decided these will be made into a wall hanging someday. 


  1. Oh, how utterly gorgeous! Well done!

  2. Wow! Love those, they look great!

  3. Oh wow! They're great, especially the Cardinals.

  4. Very pretty. A wall hanging will be outstanding!

  5. Oh I love all your little birds! They will make a beautiful wall hanging.

    I've been enjoying browsing through some of your projects you've posted and I thought I'd mention that I host a weekly Stitchery Link Party for all things hand embroidered including cross stitch and I'd love to have you come link up this post (or one of your other posts, if you prefer.) http://www.supermomnocape.com/2015/06/15/vintage-embroidery-monday-stitchery-link-party-10/

    I do hope you'll come join the fun! I'm sure that my readers would love to see what you've been working on.

  6. Stunning! Although I'm not a bird person myself, I can appreciate all the hard work and beautiful stitching! Well done :)
