Inspired by a vintage painting, this bird cross stitch pattern is of a female Rose Robin. An embroidery design to add an Australian native touch to any room. Unlike Rose Robin male birds, the females are a subdued grey-brown colour.
You can find these small birds foraging in ones or twos in forest gullies and valleys. They live along the east coast of Australia and parts of South Australia.
Can’t stitch the Rose-breasted Wood Robin pattern because you’re pressed for wall space? Why not stitch the smaller versions of these birds to arrange how you like as part of your wall decor. Or give two cross stitch gifts instead of one to the bird lover in your life.
As this pattern is an instant download, you can start stitching straight away.
