The new and improved parakeet is finished, and a rather gorgeous butterfly. Still a long way to go - I seem to spend more time staring thoughtfully at the block, and flipping through embroidery books, than I do on actual stitching.
The other day I noticed that the local discount shop has beads at half-price, so I invested in a few packets -
Just $1 per packet
I got these too
Those little sequin shapes are bound to come in handy!
