Hi everyone, I have made a little bit of progress in the last three weeks, but it is small as I have been busy getting some Christmas projects finished (sorry if it is too early for some – but if I don’t get a head start, I won’t have anything ready!)
Both wings are now finished and cut out and I am currently buttonholing around the flannel inserts.
As you can probably see the left hand wing has a much better finish around the satin stitch semi circles and the shapes are more defined – maybe I should have practised before I started to sew! A lesson learnt – but I am not going to redo them as I would destroy the tweed layer beneath the stitching.
All the little elements are now completed and I can start to put my little bird together – yay! Then I just have to tackle the base!
Keep safe and well, and more importantly – keep stitching! See you all in another 3 weeks from now.
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.
