This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Is it a plane? Is it a bird?

Well actually it is a bird, which I am sure you will know if you have read this blog before:)

The bird has actually been painted and been ready to go for a while, but I have been dragging my heels, as I decide how to proceed with the stitching.

Do I follow the same route as Soar I and Soar II, which are intensively stitched but doesn't take a lot of thinking. Or do I change tack?

Preparing the background for number three.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon preparing the background for my next piece.
I was looking forward to pulling out my needle felting machine.
I had bought myself a new set of embellishing needles and I was good to go.

Not sure if the gold accents are going to stay yet

After breaking NINE of the twelve needles I got there but not without a few expletives on the way.
I spent £15 in needles on one project!!

Got there in the end :)
