For my Parents

It is now 1:30 in the morning and I am up and cross stitching. Some would call me crazy but I don't like the heat so I choose to sleep through it and be more productive at night when it is cooler.

My parents are moving into a new house and I started this birdhouse cross stitching a year or so ago and I just picked it up again tonight so I figured I will finish it and give it to them as a home warming gift. My mom has already cross stitched the other two to this collection and hasn't framed them yet so I figure I will finish it off and she can get all three done at the same time. It is done with DMC and on Aida, I don't normally work on Aida I prefer linen but since my mom choose the others on Aida it only seemed fit. Here is how far I have gotten so far:
