Magpies are my favourite bird so it was about time I embroidered another one!
This little guy is slightly padded to make him more lifelike and I used fabric paints for the background. I used some wool and silk strings for texture on the tree stump.
Thanks for taking a look!  Grin

absolutely beautiful!  The background is just perfect.  One of these days I'll figure out this stumpwork thing, but until then... I stand in awe!
