Now all my Little Egrets are completed, I've moved to make their nest. It is a nice break from all that embroidering though equally complicated. I deiced on a mixer of three dimensional work and applique to achieve the roundness of their nest and shadowing, creating the feeling of distance and close up.
One mother Little Egret completed, just the father to go now and all seven will the finished. Mother Egret was definitely the hardest piece of embroidery I have done so far, with all her fine feathers and finding the right colours in the white!
At the beginning of the month, I started a new project. After hours and days of embroidering and what feels like weeks, I have finally finished two of the baby Little Egrets. I only have five more to go! Though thankfully I have done most of the hard work already and shouldn't take many more days to finish. My arm will be very happy to hear this!!!
Here I am still sewing away on my Rainbow Trout! The piece is defiantly coming together, the trout was tricky to recreate in fabric as you only see the trout for split seconds before it lands back in the water. But I am defiantly really pleased with the effect I have created with all its scales and twisted body.
