OK... so, I had quite a surge in hits (on my site) from my previous post. I've decided that when things get a little slow around here I'm going to put on one of my Pretty Ditty aprons and go to The Grove to find me some celebrities to take pictures with ;)
Good news! I didn't spend my weekend at The Grove, instead I celebrated Easter (of course) and I finished my revised bird cage.
I am very happy with the revised version, because it is more stable and easy to make. The color's used: red, blue, white and a touch of yellow, are one of my favorite color combinations. I am also proud on my happy little bird as opposed to the grumpy constipated bird's I made previously. Hand embroidery is not one of my strengths but I think I kind of got the hang of it with this particular bird.
You have to check out the belly of the bird. I did a lazy daisy stitch (needs improvement), but one (actually three) never the less.
I have already started on the tutorial for the shabby bird cage. I hope to have it finished by Monday at the latest.
