For sure I knew that Barbara likes the charts of Kathy Barrick-Dieter so I chose this one, which is called Brite Birds. To give the design an old look I used the 32 count Zweigert vintage linen, colour brown and I changed the DMC threads into WDW and CC. I wanted to finish it like a Hornbook so I used a chalkboard for the background. Fortunately Barbara also liked her gift:)

Today Barbara came with Arden to visit me. We did not stitch, we only had fun. Arden was so cute. We celebrated our belated birthdays a little bit. She brought me a gorgeous pincushion filled with lavender. She knows that I love blue colours and also French designers. She stitched a beautiful design from Marjorie Massey, using silk. Look at the bunnies, aren't the cute? I'm so happy with my gift.
