I really love embroidery and have admired many projects on here. So I decided to get off my backside and start to learn.
Here is a bird with a dragonfly I embroidered and tinted with watercolor paint. I used freestyle machine embroidery to draw the bird and d/fly then hand stitch the rest.

I like it very much!  Nice sketching with the freehand machine stitching!   Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Art makes me happy, and birds. Birds make me happy too.

I love Bee Eaters, they're such colorful birds. You did a great job at capturing this bird's character.
