Birds Of Killingworth 3

Hi, how have you been doing all?
I heard about heavy snow and cold wave hit Europe...
Here in Japan, too. Northern Japan and the Japan sea side have heavy snow this year.

I hope everyone is OK.

Here is a progress of "Birds of Killingworth" at the moment!
Thanks for your get well wishes, I recovered from cold and am fine now, thank you!

So many birds and bugs' antennae and birds feet have been stitched!
And also alphabets that I don't like much...

After I stitched bugs' antennae, I thought they are quite cute when they got what they needed.
Sorry bugs that I said I hate you (lol).
I like Owl very much in these birds!

Here is a nest of baby bird, I think she/he is waiting for to be fed by mum!
This is worked in a Lazy Daisy stitch.
Lovely, isn't it? I love this nest so much!

And spiders!
They are quite tiny and their webs are lovely, don't you think?!

Uhhhh, so may spiders! and grasshopper that I said yuk before, but not now!You look better than before with your antennae, grasshopper!
And here is a dragonfly, ladybug, bee, birds and my initial.
Most of friends say that they like to stitch alphabets, but I don't like it somehow...
So now I'm feeling very good as I finished alphabets!! Yahoo!

Here is a whole piece, a lady and a gentleman with some birds, Bargello stitch and Button-hole Bar stitch are left.
This time I started from dislike parts, so from now I'm so excited to stitch left parts that I like!!
As for in the small rectangular square, I will think about how to do in the end, do cross stitch or leave as it is (half stitch).
What do you think about this?

I've joined Susan's Stitching Party!

Bye for now,

Your sampler is lovely! I like the alphabet. I also save my favorite parts for last--if I stitched them first I might not finish the rest of the sampler.
