A counted cross stitch pattern of a kingfisher.
Walking by a river or a pond, you might be lucky enough to see this stunning bird as it darts along the bank, or perhaps as it returns to its favourite perch to fish. You'd be surprised at how quickly such a brightly coloured bird can disappear but turn away for a moment and you may find it has gone.
Stitch your own embroidered version to remind you how beautiful these riverbank dwellers are.
