The Bird's Tail

I will work from the tip of his tail to the top of his head so that the stitches lay one on top of the other as feathers do. His tail is more or less the one colour with a little shade variation to distinguish the individual tail feathers. I think they need defining more but I will wait until I have completed his back to see how things balance.

Just popping in to say that I have phone dates with Susan Davis from the TT Casket course now. She's a Japanese Embroiderer and giving me lots of little tips. I'm amazed at how much I've seen and can remember from reading your blog over the years that she is mentioning. Thankyou!
