TAST/CQJP Week One Fly Stitch

Week One of the TAST is the fly stitch.
I am making a very primitive sampler,
using the stitches called each week.
The fabric is Osnaburg with the stitching
being done with DMC Cebelia  (a 20 weight
The next photo is my CQJP block.
I will using the TAST stitches on my
blocks.  The pine needles have been
worked using the fly stitch. 
 I will be adding a Cardinal to the
 branch along with stitches on the seams.
It is not too late to join
all the fun.  Just get
your needles out and
