Hummingbird update

I love how this is coming along!  It's a lot of work and a lot of piddly, little detailed stuff, but it sure pays off at the end of the day and you can see it. :)  It's now official my mother has asked for her own.  So I will be stitching this again, but I think that I'm going to wait and stitch it for her for Christmas.  I was thinking Mother's day, but that's too soon to start it up right away again.  So I'm thinking Christmas will be good and I won't have to wrack my brain trying to figure out what to get her.

This Sunday starts Suzannah, the last of the 4 girls by CHS.  I've got everything together almost accept for a couple of skeins of floss. 

In April starts another SAL, the sign up is on my sidebar if anyone cares to join us.  It's Lizzie Kate's 4 Fat Snowmen!!  Sooooo cute!!  It will be a Monday night SAL so not a big commitment.  Join us!! :)  Now I just have to decide what I want to stitch it on....should I go neutral?  I've seen lots on the neutral colours and they are so pretty.  But then I've also seen shades of blue which is just as pretty.  So there's some floss tossing that I have to do to see what I want. :)   LOVE floss tossing :)

Wow! You're going to stitch this again, Barbi? I'm not sure if I could stitch a piece that intricate and detailed twice... But, anything for our moms, right? It is absolutely stunning on that fabric!!

I can't believe you're already on your 4th CHS girl. I am so impressed (and envious!)!
