Birds Of Killingworth 2

Hi, Thank you so much for your advices for the last post, as you say I decided not to change colours of flowers!

I said that I will post regularly, though I was concentrating on stitching this so much, I was forgetting to post photos of this on my blog, silly me (lol)


Here are some photos of my progress.
I stitched satin stitch for all around the square, and flowers are finished.





 Now as you see above, I stitched only half stitch in the small square in yellow, it looked bad when I stitched cross stitch in that area somehow, so I'm leaving them at the moment...

Here are bugs appeared...
You may know, I don't like bugs, so it was feeling quite yuk to stitch them, I know about myself so stitched flowers and bugs first!
When I saw the chart sample photo, I was thinking they are field peas (lol), but were not!
They are green caterpillars!! mmmm...

Geeee, grasshopper!
I haven't been stitching their antennae and birds' feet yet.


And what colourful insects they are!
Do they exist in the real life, such blue feet bugs???
I think I became tough than before to catch insects because for Tass, though...
whew, but they were gone, I only have to do back stitch for them!



And here is a photo of whole piece.
I have to stitch spiders (it looks quite cute as they are very small...) before I forward into the square that I'm looking forward to stitch so much!
And also, "Buttonhole-Bar Stitch" that I have to search how to do.

But! I'm going to take a break for a while because I think I've got cold, not flu, though...
I think I did over work! :(


I'm looking forward to post next time with wonderful design!
Take care and have a lovely day!

What a pretty project, bugs and all. I think you will be pleased with it when you are finished. Good decision to stitch half crosses on the yellow, I think. Keep up the good work.
