Learning to use wool for embroidery has been a fun new project. I am enjoying my new embroidery book from Sue Spargo and was inspired to try to re create something like her wee birds.
My birds are silk on a wool background as I couldn't wait to start and I had no wool. Have been trawling the second hand shops and now I have a good supply.......
Of course we do have flightless birds in NZ too, although I don't think these are very realistic!
My next project is an elephant, should be fun.
