This bird is taking on a life of its own!
The side feathers are stitched on. I also added the band around his neck. At this point I realized I forgot the beak. I think I was just so darn excited about how the bird was starting to look..well..very bird-like!
…and finally the last piece of the bird is stitched in place!
I un-stitched a small section of the head and tucked in the beak. Now I can concentrate on stems and leaves and grapes! Did I mention there are 98 grapes!
I am pre-washing the fabrics for the appliqued border on my Feathered Star. I am not sure what pattern I am doing yet but I want the fabric to be ready when my idea hits me!!
I pre-wash all my fabric in really hot water and Synthrapol. I just sleep better when I do!!
