Yesterday I finished three background pieces and eight bodies for the realistic birds.
The day before I added tails and wings and beaks to ten more sets of whimsical birds. Today I’ve finished up two more birds and added branches to some of the birds. I have also started the thread painting. I chose to start with green, as I wanted to tack down all the tiny leaves. I used either three rounds of free motion straight stitch or a free motion zigzag. One color down, about 99 to go.
As a diversion I made started and thread painted two tree scares.
