Blue Jay, Hand Embroidered

Blue Jay by Kirsten Chursinoff

At night, when my boys are sleeping, I work on the birds.

The newest addition to our family is now three months old. He's smiling and giggling and loves to watch his brother play. It's difficult to find time for stitching, but it's important to me so I'll find a way to keep the needles moving.

Hand embroidered blue jay. Cotton floss on synthetic felt. The background is felted with an embellisher machine (aka needle punch machine). Synthetic and wool felt, yarns and bits of cloth are trapped in the felt and there are some hand embroidered details.
