Smol = adorably tiny, also the initials stitched.
Birb = bird doing something silly, and sampler birds always look silly.
Two versions of this sampler are shown on the cover, the extra-smol one is on 56 count linen and the larger is on 30 count.
No matter what size linen you stitch it on, it will always be smol.
