The Finery of Nature SAL

The Finery of Nature

It’s three weeks since I last showed you my progress with this Dimensions kit, the Finery of Nature, I’d finally finished the second quarter with the birds nest on and just started the humming bird. You all made me very jealous with tales of humming birds in your gardens! I never realised they made a buzzing noise with their wings!

This is where I’d got to last time…

The Finery of Nature

I’ve made a bit of progress this time, though I’ve been concentrating more on other projects as I feel in the mood for a finish or two! The hummingbird is looking beautiful and he’s not even finished yet!

There doesn’t seem to be as many flowers round this one, so hopefully it won’t take too long to finish this quarter.

This stitch-a-long is organised by Avis from Sewing Beside the Sea, we post every three weeks on our chosen project, it’s a great way to stay motivated! If you would like to join us please contact Avis on the link below, otherwise please follow the links to see what every one else has been stitching.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Gorgeous progress! Love the little hummingbird. I have one or two that visit me every summer. In the late spring, when they make their way back to my area, it’s so interesting to see them fly up to where the feeder was last year. They remember and let’s me know it’s the exact same hummingbird!

    I too, am a wee bit jealous of those who have hummingbirds visit their gardens. Your Finery of Nature is beautiful. Such pretty thread colours and stitching.

    No humming birds in UK and certainly none where I live either, in New Zealand. They must be so beautiful to see as they buzz around feeding from the flowers!

    I love the shading on the wings — he’ll look even more spectacular when you’ve added the backstitching!
