I finished the tail and outlined the feathers, took out the beak and redid it so that it was narrower, and did one wing. He can't really hover yet, but almost. The back wing is a piece of chiffon with iron on interfacing. It is then chain stitched to the linen and then that is wrapped. The lines in the wings are done with the outline stitch. Tomorrow I work on the foreground wing.
The silvery chiffon is ironed onto interfacing and then cut out close to the traced pattern lines. By chain stitching around the outside edge, it secures the piece to the fabric.
