Half the Feathers

I am calling this half of the feathers stitched!  The spines will recede a lot when they are brushed over but for now they seem to jump out at ya!

More of the same

It is difficult to see but I have added in a lot of the gold spines and continued on with feathers.  I added another bead at the base of the hat too.  Missed it on the first go.

Adding more feathers and a few of the black spines.  This is a little more slow going due to all the detail and I will start adding the gold spines next.  Notice I have not brushed any of the feathers yet so I can see the spine lines.

Here and there

The dress is almost done,  I have stitched one set of curliques on the hat, added thebeads at the back base of the hat and started feathers.

Waiting on the mail!

And here is where I ran out of thread!  Setting this aside and going to stand by the mailbox!

Normally, this stitch is worked across in rows, but I changed today and worked one section down to the bottom!  The end is in sight!

Not quite...

Not quite half way done.  Mostly working with just the two colors except at the very right.

Slow and Steady

I am working away, back and forth across the canvas.  Now you can see all the needles I am
working with as I go!

Shading as I go

I am working down and across the dress.  I have several threaded needles with all the colors!

Left side

I am working on the left side gold and yellow areas.  At first I though it was more feathers, but decided that would be over the top, so I am doing it as a background.
