I embroidered this Bird of Paradise during the festive break at my parents place.
The "birds" look so majestic I think, perched above the bush looking out over the harbour.
I embroidered my bird of paradise onto some cream linen which was once a skirt with a rather large hole in it. I found it in the bargain bin at our local thrift shop and couldn't leave it there - with it's lovely soft, yet thick texture.
I made this embroidery into a little zippered purse.
