Winter Cardinal

I think we have Cardinals nearly year round in Florida. I love watching them. Here are a couple of pics of Winter Cardinal that I stitched. Isn't he beautiful? The threads are just as bright as the real feathers!! But the snow....forget about it!!

Oh my gosh, Cari!! Wow, he really is gorgeous. I love it. Lucky you, having them year round in FL. They're my favorite bird and I miss seeing them here.

Cari I LOVE this and MUST have the pattern! What is it?! The Cardinal is the state bird of Ohio...my homestate! My husband laughs because every time I see one on our back fence I catch my breath...they're just so beautiful! And every time I see one, I can't help but think of my Dad...so they are very special to me! Such a handsome bird!
