Daffodil block progress

I cut the goldfinches out of the felt and have sewn them on the block.. Before the final few stitches I stuffed a little batting under the birds and thistle pods to give them more dimension... I drew in where the stems and flowers of the thistle will go. I thought about doing the thistle flowers either in bullion stitch or beads...maybe both
.
I know that you're thinking "Now where are the daffodils on this daffodil block!" Well I have daffodils on the seam on the right which are ribbon rosettes and a bead center.. But I do have plans for LOTS of daffodils as soon as I finish a couple more seams...stumpwork daffodils, beaded daffodils, ribbon daffodils and cross stitch daffodils...You can see the little garden seam on upper right...


HWCH did actually get to have a few meals on the table before I started painting buttons....which will take a few more days...

I love those finches! What wonderful work you do. I am going to keep that technique in mind for future projects. I love stitching on felt.

Such beautiful birds! I have lately become a real sucker for birds of any kind and I think finches are so sweet!
