Week Eight: Christmas Chick

I love Valerie Pfeiffer's birds and this "Christmas Chick" is particularly appealing! The designer's use of colors, special stitches, and back stitching make the little chickadee seem so lifelike. This chart alone uses over 25 different colors! It was stitched on 28 count white Monaco using DMC threads. This is the third Valerie Pfeiffer bird design that I've stitched--have yet to frame or finish any of them though!
