Three more blocks finished for Sue's Bird Dance.
That large circle stitch is called the Trellis Stitch and
a Silken Pearl embellishment thread was used.
Lots of variations in the colors in that thread and
it's rather thick so the stitch really stands out.
A Razzle thread was used to embellishment the bird's head feather.
I stitched two Drizzle stitches and then couched them down.
It was 10 degrees when I was trying to find some sun
to take these photos so the colors would stand out more.
I'm pushing to finish the last six blocks before I start
Sue's 2017 BOM, Fresh Cut. The first installment arrives next week
and after seeing a preview...so gorgeous, so Sue and such a great design
with vivid, bright wools on a background of black wool.
Everything else is a secret for a year.
