A surprise to me

I worked on the bird's body using five strands of Splendor in the knotted stitch.  What surprised me was how long it took to get this far!  I will finish him tomorrow as I did get the wings and his legs done too.  All that is left is the small tummy area!

It's the endless background. Each piece has MILES of background. I don't know why designers always include so much background!!!!

He's darling. He'll be the cute little one in the grouping of three cardinals.
