For the birds

I enjoyed hooking theTitmouse so much I decided to try another bird.

This time I went with a chickadee.  It has been so cold here the last week I decided to put him on a snow covered branch.

I fussed and fussed with the eye.  It is so small I was hooking in threads of wool so as not to make it too big. 

I like doing the backgrounds in spot dyes, hooking them in order as they come through the cutter.  It is more tedious but I like the blurred watercolor wash effect it gives.

Enjoy the day.  Thanks for reading.
