Parrot On Parade - 40 hours

Hello all!

Mr Scruffy stayed on my frames and received the attention he was demanding.

So he's now gone from this:

To this:

If you think he's stitching up quickly, that's because he is! There are only really four colours in his chest feathers so big portions can be stitched without swapping threads too often or concentrating too hard. That's my kind of chart!!

He's had a little more work since this photo, but will now go away for a few days whilst I stitch on my three beginning-of-the-month projects. Once those have been completed I'm certain he will come straight back again - and I have an inkling that the next time you see him it will be for more than just a progress report ;)

Take care,
Rachel x

WOW Mr. Scruffy is looking great Rachel! I can't wait for him to come back out but I do look forward to the Monarch post too.

That is fantastic progress, well done! I agree, those are the best charts when they're not fiddly with the colours.

Katie said...

Mr Scruffy is sure looking grand. Beautiful progress!!

Sounds like pure cross stitching bliss. It's good to get away from confetti sometimes. I love the vibrant colours of his feathers. Great progress.
