Autumn Is Here - The Snowflower Diaries

I have another sweet little finish to share with you This is a small design, the latest one from Maja Matyas Szilagyi, called Autumn Is Here It is available here, on The Snowflower Diaries blog

I have stitched it on plain white aida 14 ct fabric and used a mix of DMC & overdyed threads This is such a sweet little bird, it was quick & easy to stitch! I've finished it off as a cushion (of course!) and used my lovely orange ric rac, some tiny little Mill Hill brown beads and some lovely green fabric I had in my stash Et voila!!! Hope you like it ☺
Happy Stitching, Ingrid

Part 1 is available on her blog Les Marottes de Nathalie I have opted for the English version, but it is available in various languages. The design being so pretty, I've decided to stitch it on simple white aida 16 ct fabric
