Each one of these is so cute that it is difficult to choose a favorite. I've been enjoying your photos of spring--all the beautiful plants & birds! Thanks for sharing via your blog. It truly brightens my day (& surely that of many others.)

Love all your animals in this post.

Justine said...

Thank you for posting all of these together. I wasn't aware of stitching blogs when you first started stitching on these so I haven't seen some of the early ones before.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Congratulations on completing the series. Do you think they will make it a round dozen?
I think I came for the last four designs so it's lovely to see all the earlier ones too.

They're a great collection of designs, well done for completing the set.

Melody said...

What a great series! Kudos to you for sticking with it and stitching all of them. I like all of the sayings. It would be hard to say which one is a favorite. I really like the lark, goose and owl best I think. :)

Andrea said...
