Mary's parrot is finished! It is nearly as big as the sheep!
This took way longer than it should have. I don't know why but I was just very slow with it.
It was stitched in a horizontal stem stitch. It definitely would have been much faster using a cross stitch, but I like the way it came out.
I have decided to stitch the big tree in the center next.
You can see that I have just made a small start on the outline.
I am getting worried that I will run out of silk. There should be enough because I am using everything that came in the kit, but I am almost out of white now, and I have the whole rest of the border to finish. Time will tell I guess.
Hope everyone is having a pleasant weekend!

Just lovely! I will keep my fingers crossed that you don't run out of silk!
I so love how this is coming out!!! Beautiful work! I hate to say it, but I've run out of silk on SL kits before. You can always email Marsha and ask for more silk. I think she'd be willing to send more.
Your parrot is gorgeous; I would have gone slow too. Great job!
Very nice stitching, well done.
Great parrot, the whole sampler is looking stunning
Beautiful stitches, and a beautiful sampler!
Oh, Erica, that is just lovely! I'm a big blue lover so this one is especially appealing :)
