Counting Is Hard by Luminous Fiber Arts Printed Paper Pattern
It is a truth universally acknowledged that counting is hard! This little blue bird has been stitching along, blissfully unaware that she just made a counting error on her last stitch! At some point when she notices, she will be prepared because she has both scissors and a seam ripper to hand for just this type of emergency.
This is my annual bird sewing/stitching themed piece. Check out previous years’ releases Sew Tweet and Savor Every Stitch.
