My new Cockatiel - from Labors of Love

This beauty from Labors of Love is just another fun canvas in an addictive series. They stitch up in a flash and are so gorgeous on a tree.

For this one, I added one strand of Fuzzy Stuff to Silk Lame', using a long and short stitch for the top feathers.

The top two wing sections are stitched in Nobuko, again with Silk Lame'. the lower wings are done with a Random Satin stitch.

For the lower body, I used the Fern stitch.

My next project--stitching all the Kelly Clark Ark animals, starting with the cheetahs.

I'll be watching the Cubs game this afternoon while I stitch away.

Happy 4th to all!
