Working to a strict deadline is often harder than you think! Of course when there is a deadline looming, life gets in the way of the best laid plans. I have made some progress on my Deerfield piece and am still hoping to send it in for marking this week. I’ve changed the shape of the wings a couple of times as you will be able to see in the picture below, but overall I’m happy with the progress I’ve made. I completed the seed stitch filling of the body yesterday and have been working on the New England Laid Stitch breast piece today. Next up is the wing and then the berries at the right hand side of the design, finally will be filling the left hand leaf. Wish me luck!
