Australian Fairy Wren in cross stitch.

This is my final piece for our Stitchin' Fingers Cross stitch round robin. It is for Jane in the U.K., who had asked for birds to be stitched on her RR. I chose the Splendid Fairy Wren for several reasons. I've got several patterns in books for this beautiful little bird, and have been waiting for an opportunity to stitch one of them. So when Jane nominated birds for her RR, I immediately decided on the Fairy Wren. It includes a DMC floss called "Electric Blue" which I had bought on a whim ages ago, simply because I love the colour. I hadn't found anything to use it on until now, so I was pleased to see it listed on the threads for my pattern!

Beautiful fairy-wren! I'd love to see the entire piece. BYW, have you every seen a cross stitch pattern for a zebra finch?

Thank you, Gina! I can't wait to see the whole piece either, lol. I'm glad I gave you the opportunity to use your thread.
