Flight of fancy.....

....sorry couldn't resist. Fly stitch week 8 of TAST.
as you can see I was tempted to sycamore seeds and snowflakes but somewhere along the line they gave way to a bird, a dove in fact. I used The Scribbler to make my sketch.

My first intention was to fill it in completety but then I quite like the suggestion of plumage, it is all in fly stitch apart from the bead of the eye.

Having looked at it on the page I may try a photograph tomorrow though the close up is OK.

Oh Pat, thank you, thank you....I am having a time thinking of things to do with the fly stitch. Love the snow flakes and the bird is so great, I hope you don't mind I shall try some snowflakes myself. I am trying to do a dandylion puff, but can't get it to come off the end of my needle.
