I know that it doesn't look like I accomplished that much at the retreat but I did work on this block a lot... You can see compared to the photo before I left... I did the large leaves on felt and then appliqued them on...these were very time consuming. I also did the outlining of the berries and added detail and gave my bird a beak.....plus some beading. Now there are just the glass leaves, his feet and some fine details.
I'm anxious to give my little bird legs and feet now as I loved them on the Wm Morris bird.. I hope to have it done by Friday. Of course I got a royal and loving welcome from Morris when I got home but also my chickens started laying eggs while I was gone. My favorite food in all the world are eggs still warm from the nest... Since they are just starting the eggs are small and a little irregular but absolutely delicious just the same..
