A good friend of mine asked me to do a bird embroidery for her parents for their Christmas present.
We had a look through a bird book together and she said they like nut hatches so I created the sketch above to work from.
I had loads of fun stitching this one, but really felt the pressure of it being a commission! I always try to create the best embroidery I can, but this one had a predetermined home and I didn’t want to let Kate down!
Thankfully she’s really happy with the finished result and I hope her parents will be too!
I love comments so don’t be shy, let me know what you think…
