Working on Bird Dance

I took a bit of a break from working on my Bird Dance blocks, I had two of three of the Orchid Birds stitched before stopping.  I got caught up doing some snowman themed projects. I've chosen not to trim any of the blocks until I'm ready to stitch them all together.
 This guy has the longest drizzle stitches I've made to date.  There is at least one more bird with even longer ones.
 I stalled on this guy and on Monday finally picked him up to stitch and finish on Tuesday evening.
 The next set to stitch are the Eggplant Trio, I cut all the wool and cotton templates yesterday.
 Along with the Powder Blue birds.  Today I cut the background wool and cotton, now to start stitching them up.
 Here is a mosaic of the first nine birds in the order I've stitched them.  I'm not got the right wool to do the third Turquoise Blue on but hope to find a match.  None of the button eyes have been added but I love how they look in sequence.
Enjoy your Thursday evening I'm off the prep the backgrounds!

Those are beautiful blocks and wools. I always make my blocks larger, I know I am always off on placement, so easier to trim at the end.

you really have a knack for putting the stitches together. I need to practice more of them...thank you for the inspiration!

Your birds are so cute! I've never tried a drizzle stitch--it looks very cool!

That's a great photo of so many together at once. It gives a feeling of how they will finally look together.
