A new finish

This is cross stitch finish #6 for 2011.

This pattern is "This Nest is Blest" by Erica Michaels.
You may get this free pattern here.


I plan on making a matching pair but hey.... gotta celebrate the finish anyway.

This pattern called for a birdhouse button.
Being that I was putting this pattern on a towel and I did not have a button.
I figured out how to put a birdhouse on there.

This pattern also calls for Splendor threads  and I used DMC. (feel free to ask me what colors I used.)

I think it looks great.
What do you think?
