Not quite as much progress as I intended this weekend, especially since I been pretty much sofa bound with a sprained ankle. It’s not even as though I sprained the ankle in a legitimate way, like slipping on the ice or being drunk, I merely fell over nothing in my own living room. Branston is loving it though, he likes it when I sit still so he can sit at the other end of the sofa and be company, he says he’s had such a nice weekend he’s considering leaving roller skates on the stairs next Friday.

A lot of the slow progress was due to trying to decide on feather placement, and a lot due to uumming and aahing over colours, but I’m happy with it now.

Netx big decision is whether to outline the feathers in blue, which would be lovely and subtle, or the same red I used for the riens. I’m currently thinking I’ll try the red on one wing, so if I don’t like it I can overwork it wiht the blue, because the red will either look fabulous or terrible.

  1. Poor you, hope the ankle is better soon. x

  2. Branston is becoming positively Machiavellian! Much as the quiet stitching time may be welcome, keep an eye on him!

    • oh, he always has been. even our neighbour who catsits when we go away comments on how manipulative he is – she used to work on a children’s cancer ward and says she wouldn’t have let and of the sick children get away with what branston pulls

  3. Loving those wings 😀
