And here's bit of a preview of the finished bird. The original has a lovely watercolour effect to it. I hope I've captured it. I've actually done 2 charts. One with a stitched background, the other is just the bird with no background.
I've also finally finished un-braiding the 'Japanese Braid'.
After I finished that I needed to rewind all the bobbins. Of course by then I was over it for the day. I'll start braiding afresh tomorrow.
