Mellerstain parrots #3 - again!



My photos are back so I'm going to sneak in this SAL post, 2 days late!  The first photo shows where I was 3 weeks ago.


I've been working on that bottom right hand corner and got a decent amount done.


Oh, that photo is a bit blurry!  I initial thought the acorn caps were embroidered with 1 strand and 1 wrap per french knot.  I thought that was too small so did one with 1 strand and 2 wraps.  Reading the chart again, I realised it was 2 strands and 1 wrap, so that's what I did!  


Not a bad effort!

Last week I had a lovely surprise from Claire. She's so thoughtful.  She sent me a sweet bunny chart and her leftover threads, a Peter Rabbit postcard (do people think I like bunnies?!?) and a handmade bookmark - I always need bookmarks!  Thanks Claire, it was a lovely surprise.


I'm stitching along as part of a SAL, you can go and see what the other participants have been up to here:

Oooo pretty!!! Your stitching is so nice and neat! And the colors are perfect for the time of year (though I'd HAVE to add red somewhere, just because haha).
