All fluffed up on a winter's day.
Not a typical Blue Jay stance
so I had to colour inside the lines to remind myself!
The background of my original photo was blurry blobs of white and green
so I put in snowballs!
A knotted blue feather stitch seemed appropriate.
And here's how it's done if you're interested
Think of the three points of a V.
Bring needle up through the top left point of that V
Take the needle down at the top right and up through the base of that V
making sure you hold the thread under the needle as it emerges.
and voilà first step done.
Now wrap the thread around your V once.
Make sure the needle travels under your V but over the trailing thread.
Oh, and don't take it through the fabric at this point.
Et Voilà a knot appears.
Then you start a new V to the right...
add a knot...
then go leftwards for the next one!
and so on and so forth.
Liked the look of this stitch so much
I thought you might enjoy trying it.
Let me know if this was of any interest...
or indeed of any use!
