Free BOM Block 2

I know I called this  Our Backyard but as I started drawing I really couldn't get away from the birds, maybe because the king parrots are eating my nectarines and the crimson rosellas are demolishing the tomatoes, but these little fellas are really cute and besides a great twittering they don't eat any thing they shouldn't.
This block is a finished size 11" x 5" and I have stitched mine in 2 strands of Cottage Garden embroidery thread in cobblestone.
As you can see it hasn't even been pressed yet, and here's the king parrot, maybe he'll get stitched next!


  1. Oh Michelle....!!! your pain with the birds.
    Maybe bird pie, roast bird or perhaps bird stew?
    No wonder your theme for stitching is birds. lol
    Stay strong trooper.
    Cheers, Anita.

  2. Your bird design is lovely and I love your other new designs too!! You have been busy :)

  3. Gorgeous block. Love these birds.
