This Blue Bird Easter Egg will add a bright touch of spring to your home. I hope you enjoy stitching it.
The pattern includes two charts, one with ribbons in violet and one with ribbons in gold. My niece, Peggy, stitched the original, gold version on fabric and entered it in her county fair. She did a beautiful job and we were so excited when her entry won a blue ribbon. I stitched the violet version on ivory perforated paper to give you a choice of color schemes.
I have designed my patterns to be complete projects with a front, back, hanger for hanging on a wall and easel for sitting on a desk. The five page pattern includes the cross stitch chart, supply list, full color photos and instructions for stitching and assembling.
