Mellerstain Parrots #4

As I'm now feeling loads better, I've joined in with the SAL again and continued working on the Mellerstain Parrots by the Crewelwork Company.

Here's where I was last time I checked in (November?)



Really blurry picture there!

Here's where I am now


I've completed all the acorns and oak leaves at the bottom - except I haven't !  I've just spotted that there is a leaf poking out behind each parrot's tail!


OK, so I've NEARLY completed all the acorns and oak leaves!  


I also did some of the berries at the top.  I'd like to get these berries and leaves finished for the next check in - then on to the parrots themselves!


I'm stitching along as part of a SAL where we all work on our WIPs, you can go and see what the other participants have been up to here:

Your are doing a brilliant job on those leaves. Can't wait to see the completed parrots

Kate Chiconi said...

Wow, loads done! I'd never have noticed the leaves behind the tails unless you'd pointed it out - you could have got away with sneaking them in when you did the birds!

Pamela said...

Very pretty!

Great progress, I had to look twice to see the leaves behind the parrots

It's lovely to see you again :-) I laughed out loud when you spotted the extra leaf. It's a beautiful piece.

Welcome back! Crewel is one of those things I love to look at, but haven't had much success with. Your stitches and shading are beautiful. I'm inspired!

Cindy said...

Glad you are feeling better and can join us again. Your parrots are coming along well.

Good work and one leaf more or less, I guess you´ll finish them soon!!!! Welcome back!

Rachel said...

There's always a bit that goes AWOL, isn't there! Never mind, you'll soon reel in the last two leaves and get on the next bit you want to do!
