It's Sharing the small things in life that make the biggest memories.
Austin Bieda

I'm sure you will all understand my pleasure at being able to see to thread a needle and stitch again !
 I am back working on my Robin's piece this has been a very enjoyable piece to design,  finding all the charts that would bring my idea together, here are a few of them these cute little robins are from a Cross Stitch Crazy magazine's Robin ABC
The quote is from the book The Secret garden and is the inspiration for the piece and I plan to stitch more of these Robins!

 It is six years since I entered the world of blogging and during those six years I have enjoyed sharing my embroidery with everyone, I have made many new friends and enjoyed the blog writings of  so many talented and wonderful people. Thank you all.   As much as I would love to send something to you all, I must settle for just one gift to go in a draw. I have decided to stitch a few more of the robins and make a collection of  embroidery smalls,( needlework accessories)  six pieces for six years.           If you would like to be in the draw leave a comment on this posting, you must be a follower of my blog to be in the draw.  I will draw the lucky person on June 30th, giving me time to have everything stitched and ready for posting by then.
 For now I am back to the fireside and my stitch.

oh, your robins are just so so so sweet! and I love that quote, I've read The Secret Garden when I was a child and loved it so so much..
quick question: could it be that the magazine the came with it this?

I would love to purchase a back-issue but wanted to be sure it's the right one, they say it features a Robin ABC but since it's not on the cover I cannot tell if it's the one you're using. thank you!
thank you for the adorable idea for a drawing, that's so so nice :)
ciao! and happy xxx!

So glad to hear you can stitch again. For someone like you, the withdrawal must have been very anxiety-producing. Love the cute little robins.. a great illustration of the sentiment.
