Here we are in September again. It's almost a whole year since I rescued that poorly hedgehog* (wonder what it's up to now?)
I've been very busy for the last couple of weeks re-formatting all of my patterns and updating my shops with new versions. I've also built a brand new website. You can find links to both my shops and this blog as well as the two free patterns in my Payhip shop.
So, you're wondering what this all has to do with robins? Well, I've just added a brand new pattern to my collection...
This sweet little robin redbreast compliments my bullfinches. I have several more which will be available in the near future and others in the planning. (Did I mention I love birds?)These bird designs are really easy to stitch and I would have finished the robin in one afternoon had I not decided to change the shade of orange I was using. I was also distracted by Frodo and Sam making their way through the Dead Marshes in The Two Towers so you may well finish it sooner than I did!
Like the bullfinches, this robin has been designed to fit into a 4-inch hoop but he also makes a great motif for Christmas cards, should you want to get a head-start on making some of your own before things start to get really busy.
However, as the title of this post implies, robins can be seen all year round so he is definitely not just for Christmas! To stitch him for yourself click here.
