Mellerstain Parrots #6

Another three weeks has passed since I showed my progress on this piece. It has been a very busy 3 weeks and I've barely had time to pick up my needle. As you'll see.  So this is where I was:



And this is what I've stitched:


Yep, that dark bit on his head.  

Yep, that's all.


So here's our overview now!

All progress is progress Wendy! I do love the parrots. You've stitched it so neatly and well.

Any progress is better than no progress! Your filling stitches are so neat, not sure what the correct name is - long and short?

What a beautiful piece.Your are a few stiches nearer to a finish:)

Half the battle is actually picking up the needle to do something with it. A lot of times I look at the frame and think "No, I don't have enough time to do anything meaningful" but actually if I only did 10 stitches each time i thought that, I'd be a lot further on! You're doing fine, and the parrot is looking great!

At least you were able to fit in a few stitches Wendy and they look gorgeous! Christine x

you might have only done a little on this piece but every stitch done is one less to do and when completed you are going to have a wonderful crewel work picture
