A Bridge and a Few Swans

Let's start with the swans.  I have been working on Curtis Boehringer's 12 Days of Christmas designs, off and on, for a while.  I decided to stitch with wool felt on a cotton background.  Here is Seven Swans a Swimming.  (That's a lot of necks!)

I have also finished Block 3, Packhorse Bridge, from The Raspberry Rabbits.  Lots of specialty stitches added to this one.  The sparkly threads for the water are one of my favorite parts.

The swans are very elegant. We have swans in our neighborhood. We have a small lake behind our home. Once in a while, one or two of the swans will visit our lake. Mostly we see them on water a few blocks away.
