Embroidery

I was looking at my messy basket of embroidery thread the other day and was suddenly inspired to sew something. Then the beads caught my eye....
.. and this was the result!


I find this 'back stitch' ( Ithink that's what it's called) embroidery very theraputic and almost addictive. Once you start you just don't seem able to stop.

All I need to do now is complete the birds and make them into cushions.

I 've used a heavy linen ,which doesn't show up well in the photos, but looks great with the black, red and white.
