As I did before, I stuffed the 2 sided ornament to give it some dimension and it's hanging in the shop, next to the first chick I finished. When these are done no one guesses that they are stitched on perforated paper...it looks like it's done on linen or aida because you just don't think of stuffing perforated paper, plus you can't see any of the perforated paper. While I can say this is not a one, two or even 3 day project for me, I love them when they are done. They come as complete kits which includes, perforated paper, beads, DMC and a hanger, although I changed this out to a white ribbon in place of the black. The eyes are what is so adorable about these chicks. Just too cute. And now, I get to pick out new projects. Whoppee!!! I've already decided on Shepherd's Bush Spring Notes since I have done a few of these "Notes" prior to now and they are a fun stitch, all the same size so you can buy one frame and swap them out to display them. I really wanted to do La D Da's rabbit but not sure I'll get to that so that might have to wait until next Easter. I'm having a bit of a difficult time picking out just one project at this point, just too many I want to do, not only from Nashville, but I have loads of charts I want to stitch from prior years. I may be a fast stitcher, but I'm pretty sure I won't live long enough to get everything done...but I'm sure going to have fun trying.
