Another image heavy post I'm afraid, I used to split the WIP and make up but I got so carried away with making this that I just kept stitching until it was done. If you are on Instagram that's where I tend to post my making photos if you want to get an early peak of things.
Well this fella is a chaffinch, he is stitched with his hair feathered in full bright May coloured bloom. He is a celebratory Hen hat and the wedding day is in May. The bride to be loves trimmings and buttons so I indulged with buttons a plenty and threaded ribbon through cotton lace. All hand stitched onto a felt teardrop fascinator. I'll hopefully add a photo of the bride to be wearing it once I get it. Now I'm totally hooked on bird headwear and am already making myself a small bird - can you guess what kind?
On a separate note this Thursday is the London showcase of the #imapiece installation. Pop along! I can't wait to see them all in the real and meet everyone.
