Here is a pretty cross stitch pattern for you to try!


Don't you love blue birds.............I am not sure why they did not turn out blue on the photo above......but they are blue. 

 My hands are busy stitching..........and I haven't any thing to show you, so while browsing through my books, I cam across this sweet blue bird pattern. It comes from the book
The Cross Stitch Garden by Melinda Coss  1995
and is full of wonderful patterns. 
I hope you can click onto this photo to work the pattern for yourself.
Also, if you visit my cooking blog, My Country Kitchen
You will find a recipe for Texas Caviar 

and a wonderful history about the Texas lady who created this recipe.

Thanks for the chart. I haven't done cross stitch in a really loooong time...yeeeaaars. There seems to be a renewed interest in the art and I am thinking I would like to stitch a project soon. Yes, I DO love bluebirds.
xx, Carol

Texas Caviar is delicious...I've had it! I'm not as "into" cross stitch as I am regular embroidery. But this is a lovely pattern. Hope you have a great week, Kathleen!
