"Forbidden to Birds" is a cross-stitch chart with instructions translated in English.
We just love the way of this strawman attracts birds instead of frightening them! The small text on the spade says "Forbidden to" with the pattern of a bird in back stitches (text in French on the grid but easy to adapt in English as it is in back stitches).
