This pattern is a computer generated version of one of my paintings- Birds Bees N Trees, which was inspired by one of my handpainted birdhouses that is hanging on our pole out front- surrounded by creeping vines and morning glory, and had recently been moved into by some lovely birds- who decided- that they were indeed welcomed!! I chose to release this pattern- without stitching the model, as time ran short for the season- and I didn’t want to wait another whole year 😊 I’ve got so many- and time flies just so fast!!! So- with that in mind- the chart should go quite smoothly- as I’ve gone over it with a fine tooth comb, however- if you have any issues- by all means- please get in touch with me…
I charted this for 36 count- and suggested 1 over 2- for a thread count, however, It’s really all a matter of preference… I am showing on the cover- the computer generated cross stitch view- The final outcome – of course- will depend on what kind of linen you choose… Your linen choices- are so enormous- I don’t think you could go wrong. I do suggest using my prim stained linen- but of course- again- as always- your linen choices- are 100% yours and personal.. I love that about cross stitch!!! All of my linens are sold separate from my charts. You can find them right on my website.
Basic cross stitch x’s are used throughout this entire piece, as well as some back stitching.
One more note, as you get to the color chart/key, I highly suggest my favorite colors- shown- in the Gentle Arts Threads!!! I charted the design using DMC, and then marked down my Overdyed Thread choices next to the DMC colors. By all means- this is all yours and you, so have some fun with colors!!!
Finishing for this chart is entirely up to you…
Please note!!! I don’t wish for anyone to “adapt” this cross stitch pattern into any other pattern on their own, as it is my design and I will be releasing future patterns using this, including a punch needle design and possible a hooked rug pattern. If you’ve any questions regarding this- please do let me know….
Last thing, before you get stitching- is that if you’d like to order linens, threads, just send me an email, visit me online, and/or find me on facebook!!! I sell and carry almost all supplies used for each pattern I make…
And again- if you ever have any questions- please just get in touch with me!!!
Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!
