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

I knew this was you before I even opened the thread! Grin  This is just beautiful sewphie -- I love all the texture in the stump.

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!

Beautiful.  I love the way you have captured that structural blue in the wing.  So lifelike.

Very sweet!  By the sneak peak I first thought it was painted, that is just great work!

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was an outside photograph. So realistic and stunning.

Amazing! There aren't enough adjectives to say how gorgeous your embroidery is.
