Hi everyone, sorry I am so late to post today – I just keep losing track of the days! I hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time. I have got myself into a routine of school work in the morning and a little bit of gardening after lunch and some sewing in the evening. I do seem to have managed to get a little bit of sewing done on my little blue wren this time around. Here was where I was up to last time….. I had finished the tail and made a start of the needle lace collar…
Since then I have finished the collar and made a start on the top of the birds head – shading the cheeks with chenille threads and a ribbon work crest – both new techniques for me.
I then added the needle lace collar, and covered the join with sequins. Also added a little fly stitch with metallic threads. So here is where I am up to now….
I can’ t believe how long this little part of the birds head has taken me. Next job the wings.
A big welcome to our newest member, Sherrie. Can’t wait to see what you are working on!
