Nearly there - one more day to go.
I think there are now 4 lots of echoing round the feather, The circles in the spine are done, the sun was shining as you can see .... and after much trial and error
I am using a deep purple silk thread...and have changed to a dark brown on the back. Not too thrilled with it, but there you are.
I may do some more tonight as its way too bright in the Studio for now.
I am working out the filling as I go!
