Housework Is For The Birds

Hello everyone!
I did not expect to take so long to update the blog…

Since my last post I picked a design by Heartstring Samplery.
Did not take too long to stitch it, but later I was lazy in the bird appliqué.
I also decided to back to an old work in progress that I’m almost to a finish!
I’ve been ill too and for last I stitched the new design called “Easter Hen” by Teresa of Primitive Acorns.

Here is my start on “Housework Is For The Birds”:

The piece without the appliqué:

I decided to use wool for the bird, the pattern called for a piece of cotton fabric for the bird body and a piece of felted wool for the bird wing. Now I just need to sew the wool and get this piece framed.

Design by Heartstring Samplery – Housework Is For The Birds.
Stitched on 40 count Oatmeal Newcastle Linen by Sparklies using threads from The Gentle Art and felted wool from Weeks Dye Works.

Thanks for visiting!
Happy stitching,
