It's been forever since I've had a bird finish to show, but I'm determined to get all of them stitched before more new ones come out! This one is #13 for me--five more to go.
Now, I have to explain this one a bit. If you've seen the leaflet (Victoria Sampler, Button Up Birdies 8) you'll know that this little guy doesn't look much like the stitched model. The orioles I've seen here on the East Coast are black and orange with a black hood, so I did some research and discovered the model is a Bullock's Oriole, common to the Western United States. I wanted to stitch the kind we have here, so I gave him a make-over and turned him into a Baltimore Oriole.
I'm also happy to report that Tiger Lily has bounced back from her vet visit and resumed her duties as Stitchy Supervisor.
The Ear Drops Adventure is going pretty well so far, but she has a very sharp learning curve so I'm not hopeful that will last. Fortunately, we only have to do it 26 more times.
