How funny that my birthday was on World Embroidery Day this year – just another excuse to get a little more stitching done! I had hoped to show the finished ‘Bird on a Wire’ goldwork project – but alas am no where near complete. There was just so much plunging of metal threads to do following the basket weave wings. Here is my progress so far….
I have completed the birds body (well almost) and most of the basket weave. So all that I need to do now is edge the bird in pearl purl, complete the s-ing on the branch and finish the cutwork on the leaves. Happy World Embroidery day everyone!
