Painted Swans, stitched




I have finished the swans that I showed the other day.
I used WonderFil Rayon threads for the stitching, a bit of blue metallic under the birds. I used a variegated WonderFil Accent thread for the trees in the foreground.
For a first attempt I'm quite pleased with the results.
I look forward to your comments.
