Stitchin Fingers Cross Stitch Round Robin

Well Terry, you will be pleased to know that the fabric you sent has begun to be used. The first piece is for a Round Robin on stitching fingers. There are six participants and I have chosen a bird theme. No matter where I have lived in the country, we have had robins in the garden, so this seemed to be a perfect choice and of course, very appropriate for a Round Robin. This little robin will be trotting around the globe for most of the rest of this year.

It didn't look as if this was going to be completed on time last week, but as long as I get to the post office this week, it will be sent out right on schedule. Couldn't have planned it better if I had tried!
The pattern for the robin came from the June 1994 copy of Needlecraft. It is stitch on 14 count aida using DMC threads. It looks as if I had made a start on two of the birds included and then abandoned them. I really like the whole series, so I think I will do the other three together and finish them the same way to match the round robin.
I cannot wait to see what everyone one else adds.

I love robins. We have loads, all with their own patches of the garden/field. It is lovely.

Robins are such cheery birds. I used to buy the Needlecraft magazine, such a shame when it was discontinued, although I know there are many more now to replace it.

I had a giant robin in the front yard yesterday-he was staring me down.

Dear little pet! Would you like me to stitch a similar small native Australian bird when your RR comes to me? I'm thinking Blue Wrens or small parrots such as budgies.
