We interrupt this blog for this important announcement...

Okay, so I have been finishing things, yay!

Here is the Thursday Night version of my lovely phoenix:

... and here it is, FINISHED!! (This is exciting. I started this in 2006.)

Yaaaay!!! I think I got the bird placed just perfectly on the hand-dyed cloth - it really looks luminous (more so in person; my phone camera really isn't made for this sort of thing). The eye and beak are clear iridescent beads attached with the same yellow thread as the rest of the bird. Also, must note that this was a September finish, which is why my UFO count for September seemed to go down more that you otherwise might have thought. But hey - it's DONE!


  1. Beautiful - I'm impressed as always!

  2. Beautiful! You are really making me want to pull out my cross stitch stuff again!

    Great job!

  3. The colours are fantastic. Congratulations on getting it finished

  4. Do you have a pattern for this?

  5. I did (but no longer have it); the chart is from "Who Knew?" - I don't know if it's still in print. The lovely folk at may be able to track it down for you.
