Blackbird Designs Hannah Lovina Joslin Sampler

From the Honeysuckle Manor Samplers and Projects in Vintage Style book (2010)
Stitched on straw linen

I changed the bird in the lower left corner.  The original pattern had the bird's head butted up against that lower left flower.  I shifted the bird's neck only (not the body) 4 threads to the right to separate it from the flower.  Once the main vein that goes around the left, top and right sides of the stitchery were done, the placement of the rest set up pretty quickly.  Goes to the frame shop this week :)
