I began stitching this evening on a Christmas ornament for my grandma. I decided to use the cardinal from the Red Bird Sampler by Bent Creek. I'm stitching it on 32 count dirty linen over two using weeks dye works cotton thread. As you can see I'm almost finished! I was really surprised at how quickly this worked up. My grandma has a special bird collection and one of her favorite birds is the cardinal. I hope she'll like it.
