Little Bird Proto-Ornament

Given my general lack of downtime recently, I have been searching for a potato chip like project. Let me introduce my new Tiny Stocking Ornament kit I picked up recently.

The first one I started went really quickly, although it had been so long since I worked on a cross stitch piece that I managed to forget which way to cross my stitches halfway through. Oops! I still need to sew it into a little felt backed stocking, but the stitching is done.

I was particularly inspired to work on this one, as we had a very friendly chickadee follow us around when we were out hiking at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. He came right up to us and posed for several minutes before heading off on his day.
