Hummingbird finished and more stash!

Come join me in my happy dance!  Hummingbird is finished, so now I can move it from the WIPocalypse page to my Finishes 2013 page instead!  This was one of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge starts from 2012.  I haven't forgotten any of them and I still want to finish them all!  I used 16 ct pink blush Aida.  The leaves and flowers are stitched over 2 and the hummingbird is stitched over 1. This is my first time making lazy daisy stitches, and there are gold Mill Hill seed beads on it, too!
Hummingbird - FINISHED!

I've been stocking up on fabric.  Look what I found on eBay!  Lots of Aida 14 ct and 18 ct and Hardanger 22 ct.  The two big rolls of dark Aida are from the trade/giveaway pile at our cross stitch get-together last Saturday.

Now I need to build up my floss stash next!

What will you do with all that fabric! The hummingbird looks really nice, I especially like the border you did around the design, is that a special type of stitching?
