Hi everyone, another 3 weeks has whizzed by and the evenings are drawing in quickly. I don’t know what it is about this time of year – but I just seem to pack everything away at 4.00pm and shut myself away in front of the fire! But I have managed to make a start on my blue wren (Kit by Jenny Adin-Christie). I have started with his tail – this involved silk shading three areas in three different blues before outlining with silver purl pearl. Blue passing thread was then used to fill in the remaining areas.
Happy stitching everyone.
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all in another 3 weeks.

It’s looking lovely already. I love all the textures.
Thank you – it is a slow start!
This looks so intricate, and so many pieces. You love a challenge, don’t you! It’s beautiful.
I do enjoy a challenge – but can often get side tracked. Hopefully I will be able to see this through!
Very nice and accurate your embroidery! Hugs
Thank you Carmela.
As always I am amazed by your projects and the variety of stitches you use. Looking forward to seeing more of your wren!
Thank you – I have to admit that all the blues were very hard on the eyes!
I agree, hibernation is becoming ever more appealing!
Such a beautiful start, and I quite agree, I’m in full on hibernation mode and the cats love it, any excuse to come and snuggle up for some body heat! xx
oooh I”m going to enjoy seeing you work on this little birdie!
Wow, this is looking amazing already. Such gorgeous colours and textures.
But all the blues are very tricky on the eyes!
The shading is gorgeous!
Thank you – although it can be very difficult to see!
Always amazed by your projects! You’ve made some great progress on your little blue bird ❤
Aww thank you – it is a slow start!
This one is going to be really cute. I love the shades of silver and blue already. 🙂 Have fun and keep warm.
Thank you – must admit the weather is beginning to turn. Not had a really cold night yet though!
🙂 soon the weather will feel like winter. It is full on summer here, and we even had our first bit of good rain. Rained a whole night, which we need so desperately.
Take care and enjoy the turning weather, specially all the gorgeous colours of Fall.
You really do find the most beautiful embroideries!!!!!
There are some talented people out there!
Such pretty blue and lovely stitches! Happy Stitching from me.
Thank you Jocelyn – just wish I could find more time to do the sewing!
Looks like a good start!
