I have completed another square a bird theme this year I have yet to take a picture. The square is at home and I am not. I started the blog to help to keep track of what I stitch. Will add picture when I get home. Bead and Button is doing the square this year.

So close to being finish. Just need to transfer the design to the black background then the gold-work. I will wait until Nov. for class. I need help to remember the best way to transfers. What I have done before I did not like what I did because it was had to get the gold work to look right. I wish their was an easy way to do it or just paid someone to do transfer then I do the gold.
