Natural History Needlework Patterns

Erica Wilson Vintage Crewel Kit from AppelJar on Etsy

Happy Monday! The July/August Creative Challenge is coming up! The theme is "natural history", which encompasses a broad spectrum of wonderful things, such as (to quote Etsy), "woodland forest themes and animals, namely birds, owls, squirrels, hedgehogs, chipmunks, bunnies, butterflies, feathers, nests, eggs, acorns, leaves, trees, branches, woodgrain, and natural colors". Perusing through Etsy, I have found a few patterns and kits that would work well for this challenge. But of course they would be fun to stitch up anytime!

Beautiful Colored Bird Vintage German Cross-Stitch Kit from Holliezhobbiez on Etsy
