Hello everyone, after working on a beautiful goldwork robin, that had been designed by Georgina Bellamy of ‘That Embroidery Girl’, some time ago – I decided to make another one as a Christmas gift. This really is a lovely little design to sew. It has enough challenges to keep you interested, but not so many as to make you feel totally daunted.
It took me three days to complete this little fellow and I am really pleased with the results. Here is a close up of his face and red breast. The top of the robin’s head was sewn in both bright check and smooth purl. As you can see I haven’t laid the metal threads flat like the sides of the bird – instead I have overlapped them all to add texture. The breast is worked in metal threads (in three different colours) that have been looped and sit tightly together.
Here is the finished bird, I hope the recipient likes him too….
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching everyone….
