Flamingo sandal week #2
I drew in the outlines of the flamingo bodies 1/2" below the painted area so I could extend the stitching without additional painting (though the new canvases will have that area painted in). I did the left hand green flamingo's wing in the Byzantine Scotch stitch and started the periwinkle flamingo's wing, using the patio cashmere stitch. I completed all the eyes and beaks. I have also worked on the background, but my progress has been slow. I plan to teach this as a class next month, so must get speedier in my stitching.
