I stitched this up for a New Year's Resolution vintage pattern stitchalong on Flickr.  I had a pretty good garden last year, but I think I can have a great one in 2012!  Grin  The pattern is an illustration from a vintage children's painting book provided by Q is for Quilter (she has a great collection and shares just about everything!).  I fused some reproduction fabrics onto my background for the girls dress and kerchief and stitched around it.  I tinted her skin, hair, and little bird friend with chalk.  This is an 8" hoop.







Questions and comments welcome!  Thanks for looking.

Oh wow!  Thanks for all of the kind feedback.  Cheesy  I almost felt a little guilty stitching that little phrase on there with that sweet girl, but it definitely makes it more me.
