This was a free gift with Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine Issue 226 March 2017.
Inside the magazine there were a couple of design options but I chose the blue bird as my Grandad has a blue Parrotlet called Daisy. I made the necklace for my little cousin who is 6 as she likes jewellery.
I find it quite challenging stitching on wooden board as it’s hard to get the needle through the holes, especially when you are performing a second stitch. I managed to give myself a very sore finger pressing down on the needle to pass it through the holes and ended up snapping one of the cheap needles I had!
The finished project looked good though so it was worth a little pain!
