Counted cross stitch pattern of two Rose-breasted Wood-Robins Also known as Rose Robins (Petroica [Erythrodryas] rosea). They are small Australian native birds. Males of this species have a distinctive rose-pink breast. While the females are a un-remarkable grey-brown colour. Inspired by an Elizabeth Gould illustration.
These birds live across eastern and southeastern Australia. They can be found foraging in wet eucalyptus forest and rainforest. During the cooler months they migrate to drier forest areas.
A fun and challenging modern bird cross stitch pattern. It will take a little time to create, but is worth the wait once you have a beautiful piece that you’ve created by hand. Recommended for beginners, this easy robin cross-stitch chart uses only whole cross stitches.
This is a perfect embroidery gift for a bird lover. Great for Elizabeth Gould admirers, robin fanciers, or crafters who love to dive into new projects.
