Change is good

At least it was for the goldfinch.  Removing the 924 at the bottom, for some reason, made a big difference in the look of this tweet.  The softer neutrals worked out well and I think the yellow looks fine on this blue whereas before it was just too much.  I tried my best to make this little guy recognizable as the finch, he's a little too tall I believe, but I wanted to keep the counts similar.  Close enough.  I am thinking about a chickadee with his black accents on a pale yellow linen as a companion.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I changed the stitch pattern at the bottom and the two extra stitches are just that and will be within the seam.
 
Backing requires a decision, which requires too much brain space right now.
 
 
 
 
It's snowing.  Happy tax day.

Snowed here in western New York all afternoon, too. Small accumulation on the grass. Might get measurable snow on Thursday! Is this what our taxes get us? Really like that bird.

The sun is shining and it will 25 degree Celsius today here in the Netherlands.

Love your birds, especially the gold finch. Love chickadees too and the little chirping sound that they make.

YES! This is very pretty. I love your idea of the companion on pale yellow. That would be a really nice match.

Hello my friend,
We really enjoyed the Goldfinch when we lived in VT. My 'fav' is the 'Chickadee'. Miss them all including the wild life that would come to visit.
Your piece is looking great. Enjoy your day, Barb

The goldfinch looks great! And I like the idea of a chickadee companion and look forward to seeing him.
