Two Little Blackbirds

This piece makes me SO happy!  Brand new from Melissa Shirley.

Trellis background stitch from June McKnight’s new book “Colorful Backgrounds”

The flower is Milanese stitch done in different directions.


 I think my dandelion poofs need a little trimming.  Turkey Work with Wisper, anyone?


No, the birds are not beaded.  I stitched them with Fyrewerks metallic.  It is the Airplane stitch, from Colorful Backgrounds, as well.


This design comes in 2 other color ways.  It is on 13 mesh and measures 14 x 8.  Check out Melissa’s website to see the other colors.

It’s 1650 A, 1650 B, 1650 C.  There are also smaller sizes and it is also done as a clutch purse.
