I chose the Paradise Bird taking nectar from flowers - appropriate for Bali, where we stayed with friends in their villa with a beautiful garden. This one is stitched and backed in black.
I began the project on the plane to Bali and by the time we arrived I had a good start.I took 4 other projects - just in case I ran out of things to do! I did do a few hours on one of them - another story.
It was great to sit by the pool and stitch away, when I wasn't reading or swimming.
The work progressed steadily. It has a lovely sweeping flow to it.
I finished it the day before we returned home and am very pleased with the result, dappled here by the shade of the frangipanni trees.
