The last stitches are in

Tonight, I put in three (or more, here and there) rows of tent stitches all the way around the outside using four strands of DMC 414. I did not use the same fibers as I did in the piece. Sometimes, I do, sometimes I don't! I did this in a dark gray all the way around to follow the flow of a chickadee's feathers, as he then goes to black all over the back. I will using a black satin for his back. I will work on the finishing this weekend.
Cyn asked what is next? I have the Bluebird to do, but am still deciding on threads, so check back tomorrow to see what I will do in the meantime!

Charlie the Chickadee is darling! I think he'll be as elegant as a jewel thief with black satin on his rear. Nice job, Pat. He's full of personality and is a worthy cousin of the other Squiggee birds you've stitched.

Hi Pat,

He is very cute!

I'm laughing at Jane's comment about black satin on his rear... How come I'm picturing a penguin now? LOL!!!
