I had a difficult time finding any fabric which I thought worked as a bird wing so I made my own! The two birds in the outer border have wings made of individual small paisleys which I fussy cut and appliqued using the starch method. The wings were preassembled before stitching them on.
Here are the other birds -
I'm not sure what to do about this one's beak and may just let the fabric design be the beak.
I'm trying to finish the embroidery on the center panel and applique borders by the end of the month. Dare I say it? I think I might just make it or come very close!
Until next time, Mayleen
