Orchids & Hummingbird Cross Stitch


 On August 10, 2014,  I started working on this kit that was in my stash. Orchids & Hummingbird by Dimensions. It was a surprise gift from my husband in 2013 and I was inspired to get it going in anticipation of the Hummingbird's arrival to my garden for the second year in a row! They come down from the nearby mountains in mid to late August and stay for only about a month.....not long enough! Here's a photo I took the first time one showed up...

My progress....

This was my progress as of Sept 9, 2014. With the arrival of Fall, my favorite time of year, I decided to put this one away and get out a more 'seasonal appropriate' kit to work on. Up next.....Glory of Autumn!

Your stitching looks lovely and so does the hummingbird you have photographed. What a pitty that we don't have any hummingbirds in Finland.

Wow that is gorgeous (but also a lot of work I imagine). Good luck with the project!
