I love Chickadees. Small, chubby, busy, with that cheerful little buzzing chatter. Birds are usually beautiful rather than cute, but on the adorableness scale, I think Chickadees are right up there with the impossibly cute Tufted Titmouse. If you've been following my blog, you know I've slowly been stitching up all the Button Up Birdies from Victoria Sampler. There were twelve, and I was almost done with them, and then they released four more. {sigh} I've been busy with other projects, but I finally have another one to show off. Here's #13 (for me). 

If you've seen the design, you'll notice I've changed the colors (shocking for you, I know). The original has blue and red mittens, and red berries. I wanted a softer look, so I used my favorite pink (CC Cerise) and green (GAST Green Apple) for the mittens and some blue-ish beads to resemble Juniper berries.

As always, my work was closely monitored for quality.

And here's a sweet little ornament I picked up yesterday.

There were lots of different bird ornaments--including a gorgeous Red Bellied Woodpecker I was having a fit for--but I behaved myself and only bought one. 

For now.


  1. I have to agree on the adorableness. ;) I like your changes.

  2. I hope you passed your quality check lol.Lovely ornament:)

  3. Very pretty. I enjoy watching the chickadees at my bird feeders.

  4. Beautiful! All three - the stitching, the ornament and Tiger Lily. I like your color changes. Those colors are calming to me.

    Thank you for all the comments on my blog. They mean a lot of me.

    1. My pleasure, Lynn! I love your blog... especially reading about your sweet kitties!

  5. Cerise wins again! Love the changes! They always look simple but I know they take time.
