Bayeux Bird

I finally got around to doing a Racaire inspired, Bayeux animal. I'm using Appletons crewel wool on a second hand wool blanket. I really like the colours. I am tempted to get one of the old blankets and decorate that, rather than cutting it up. I am going to make this bird into a roundal, probably one of a pair, and see if I can sell them. I thought they would look quite nice sewn next to the clasps on a cloak.

I don't think I will get any embroidery done tonight. I have to fix the front of my black dress. It is too long and we have another demo this weekend, so I need to raise the front by an inch or so, so I don't keep stepping on it when I am walking around.
