Summer Of New Starts #3 - Autumn Bird

Hello all!

For start number 3 I chose the final seasonal bird, autumn, working on the tail first so you weren't just seeing a duplication of last week's Winter Bird. Time was on my side so I was able to stitch a bit more than usual and consequently made a really good start.
Bird by Hobikolik (etsy)
Stitched on 16ct Peach Cobbler over-dyed aida by 2 over 1
Stitched in Threadworx 1076 Honky Tonk
Stitch count 80 wide by 80 high
Stitching time to date - 5 hours 35 minutes

This will only take a couple of hours to finish off, whenever that may be (although hopefully sooner rather than later!)

Take care,
Rachel x

Beautiful colors in this one too. Love the way it's turning out.

I love the colors and fabric you chose for this one. It screams Autumn to me. I hope you can work it in for a finish soon!

Winter Bird is off to a great start Rachel. I love how the floss looks when you stitch with it, so much prettier than seeing just the skein.

I had to check the other post to see what still needed doing, because I initially thought this was already finished! Great start.
