Speaking of birds.......

I'm so happy to be stitching again and what could be a better treat than to work on Arlene's lorikeet... I had barely started when I had the accident and have been so anxious to get back to it... The colors are just so joyous that they make me glad to be alive. One of my favorite stitchers is Lauri B. and if this weren't a real bird she would have invented one in these very colors.. so whenever I think of a lorikeet I will think of Lauri B...



And speaking of birds... if you are thinking of trying a long & short hummingbird than go to http://dmc-threads.com/hummingbird-vintage-chinese-screen/ I copied this image and pattern and they're from the embroidery on a vintage Chinese screen... What a great pattern and I am going to do this for sure!!!!

I follow their site. Most times their things are not in my interest range but every once in a while I find an absolute jewel and this pattern is definitely a gem...

As I commented on the DMC blog, I don't think this bird is really a hummingbird. The beak is way too broad and short. Hummingbird bills are long and think and pointy.

I certainly don’t know Chinese birds, but it reminds me of some kind of flycatcher…

Oh Gee Nu Mom
You make me blush! I can't help it I just love lots of color. And that bird is a beautiful one. You are right that is the way I would design a bird if I could
Glad to hear you are feeling better!!
