Tread Softly is my 2021 May bird sampler, fourth in an annual tradition of releasing a fantastic cross stitch pattern with birds. This is a luscious project! I absolutely love everything about it, from the colors of the silk in the owl to the beautiful words from William Butler Yeats.

I've loved this pattern since Stephanie revealed it on Instagram, and I was thrilled to receive it in the mail. I ordered the thread pack, too, and it has started stitching up so nicely.
Beautiful pattern and is stitching up easily! Love the color choices.
I’ve been stitching this pattern since I received it in the mail. I purchased it with the thread pack too. My only complaint is I can’t stitch it fast enough! It’s just so pretty though. I can’t wait to have it finished.
