The start of next embroidered piece

Hi there Folks ~ When I saw a picture that SweetBay posted in her blog of a sweet little Eastern Bluebird, I asked her if I could use the photo as inspiration f
or a needlework piece, and she graciously gave her permission.

I finally started this afternoon. Already have almost 2 hours into the piece. I am using one strand of embroidery thread instead of two, for a finer look. I already used a black bead for his eye, and that brought him to life.

This piece is a tad intimidating, but I'm enjoying i
t now that I've started.

Latest bead/embroidery piece

Here is the last piece. I haven't done anything else in a couple of weeks, as that one tied my back up in knots, so I had to take a break. I love doing this, but it's tedious, and breaks are needed for body and mind. It's just while you are working on something like this, you think one more stitch, one more bead.

Thanks for looking.
