Hi everyone, as I am now back in school there is less time to sew (not that I had a huge amount- what with all the online learning to post!). But I have made some progress on my little blue wren.
Last time I posted I had just finished the breast area which was worked in sequins and metal work…..
Since then I have turned my attention to the wings which will form little needlecases. A wire casing is sewn around the outside edge of the wing using buttonhole stitch. The scalloped edge is also buttonhole over a larger detached stitch. Satin stitch in two shades of blue – not my neatest! and then the rest of the wing uses goldwork techniques. One wing down and I have made a start of the second now.
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all safe and well in another 3 weeks.
We are a small group of crafters using a variety of different techniques. Please check out the fabulous stitching by all the other members of the SAL. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.
