What materials did you use? 300 thread count Egyptian cotton pillowcase, cotton embroidery floss

What are you most proud of? The diagnostic characteristics of the warbler. I am not an artist, but I like to sketch plants and animals, so anytime my embroidery actually looks like the real thing, I think it's a success.

I just sketch images onto cloth--I'm not a great artist, so I usually work from a photo or live leaves or whatever I want to sketch. With the birds, including my cardinal and others on my page, I went to a good bird guide not with photos but will illustrations and drew from that!

Very nice. My mom used to love watching the birds come and go with the change of seasons as well. My kitchen window is the frame for my bird watching.
