Inspired by a vintage painting, this bird cross stitch pattern is of a colourful male Rose Robin. An embroidery design to add a touch of nature to any room.
These Australian native birds are usually found foraging in ones or twos. They live along the east coast of Australia and parts of South Australia. And, would you believe these small birds belong to the same order as Crows?
Don’t have wall space for the Rose-breasted Wood Robin pattern? 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.
Since this pattern is an instant download, you can begin stitching straight away.
