The Parrots Return

The parrots have been taking a break for far too long and I decided it was time to get them out again and work on them.  I’m nearly at the 50% mark now, which is a good thing.

This is the top section that I finished.  Next up – the berries.

Mellerstain Parrot Progress

This is the full shot – I stuck it in the big hoop.

The Mellerstain Parrots Full Progress Shot

I think I’ve mentioned it before but I’m a member of CyberStitchers.  A great online embroidery group.  My closest group is Madison and it’s not far, but sometimes too far to go for just a meeting.  Well, I was reading through the daily digest of mail and noticed an online embroidery shop was going out of business and everything was 40% off – but their original prices were so good it’s really more like 50% off.

So I noticed they had a Crewel tab and wouldn’t you know – they had Crewel Work Company kits.  Then if that wasn’t enough to send me into a tizzy – they had the matching pillow – the stag – to my parrots and the full Mellerstain fire screen kit, which I would frame.  All three pieces are a matched set.  They also had another lovely pillow (Jacobean Rhaposdy) and that flew into my cart as well. It’s more advanced, but I figure after I stitch the other kits and the ones I bought over the summer – I’ll be ready.  I think they were all in stock because I didn’t get an email saying they weren’t, but I’ll find out next week when I get my order and let you know.
