...quietly working an old favourite of mine, blanket stitch, closely side by side to create lazy scalloped edges.
Perfect (deep sigh)
Twisting and turning the work as I stitch the areas of colour, shapes and texture form abstract patterns. - not at all sure about that pale cornflowery blue...
The scalloped edges finishes the top the wing, connecting the larger feathers
...and the colours work - I think.
From a distance the bird comes together. It is so easy to forget to lean back and look from a distance.
It is amazing what just a quiet hour with needle and thread can do for the soul - I slept like a baby.
Have a lovely weekend,
