Birds to the Boughs Cross Stitch Pattern

A modern cross stitch sampler pattern, 'Birds to the Boughs' combines a fresh color palette, funky motifs, and romance. The text on this sampler is from Louis Simpson's lovely poem entitled 'As Birds are Fitted to the Boughs.'

Stephanie Webb of Lindy Stitches secured permission from Mr. Simpson's estate to reproduce the poem in cross stitch, and the entire poem is included in the chart for your enjoyment.

The design is available as a printed hardcopy pattern. If you want to get up and stitching quickly, save yourself the time of collecting all the supplies and purchase one of our bundle options which includes the pattern along with fabric, thread, and needles.
