Having done the long tail feathers I moved on to the next set above the tail. I decided to do closed fly ( it always seems to end up closed fly!),but shaded the wools - not too happy with the dark yellow, so it will have to come out yet!
The main wing caused a bit of a headache too. I did do a row or two of blanket stitch but it just looked too clunky. So I changed to a laid stitch and I will anchor this with some threads on top of it.
Laid wool for the wing
Birdy is nearly finished, onto the acorns and leaves next.
