Red feathers........

I have been so busy over the last couple of days that I have hardly picked up my stitching, I do hope I will get a little time over the weekend.

You may remember this lovely little chickadee I stitched in January. I made him into an ornament but I had nothing in the right red to trim him with. My mum said tinsel would be a nice idea, but as you dont see tinsel very much these days, even at chistmas its not as common as it was but I did rather like the idea. Well a friend and I decided we would have a walk through the park and visit our local market yesterday and I saw a delightful red fluffy trim, so last night with 5 mins to spare I finished him off. What do you think of my little fellow now?



I am thrilled with the results, though I am afraid he has had to go away until christmas time.

The trim added the perfect finish. I'd be tempted to keep him out a while. I always keep an ornament or two around my desk to enjoy all through the year.

What a doll, he looks adorable with his red fluffy trim, very cute. What a shame it is such a time till Christmas, I think I'd have to keep him out anyway he's so cute.

Your Papillon SAL piece in your earlier post looked beautiful, the colors in that are lovely.
