A Little Birdie Happy Dance

I started this yesterday and finished it today. This is a very different style for me and I really like it! It's by Elizabeth's Designs. It was a freebie, but I couldn't find where I got it from. I've never done the stitch on the leaves before. (Is that a satin stitch? I don't even know!) But I think I did pretty good on them. I haven't decided yet how I am going to finish this. Maybe a little ornament to hang somewhere in my home?
I had a pretty good day subbing today. A couple of the classes were a little difficult to control, but they finally got with the program and settled down. I'm working at the same school again tomorrow. I like to go to this school.
I am extremely tired. I couldn't go to sleep last night until after 2:30 am and then I had to get up at 6:30. When I haven't subbed in a few days, I get very excited or anxious or something and then I have trouble falling asleep. So I'm doing this post and heading straight to bed. I hope I sleep better tonight. Have a happy day and may God bless you!

Lovely little finish, it would make a good ornament. I think that is a satin stitch

I think it's called a leaf stitch, but it's really just a series of satin stitches. It turned out beautifully! What a lovely pick-me-up for you. :)

Congrats on your little robin finish. I love your Snowpeople. I have deleted my post too, then I have either said forget or I made it short. I hope you get some sleep. Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to more of your stitching.

I forgot to say on my last comment.........if you've typed up something long and wiped it by mistake, press the 'ctrl' key and the 'z' key at the same time and it'll re-appear :D
