Hummingbird #15

This soaring male has a red and pink body with purple tail and green wings. His motto is never say dull!

Hummer Tablecloth Progress

I am enjoying putting the flying characters on this tablecloth. At about half finished with the birds there are a few things becoming apparent with the design so far. The flying guys don’t seem to have as much to do with thoughts about the future design of the folaige and blossoms around them as the perched ones do. These are the kinds of thoughts going through my mind as I look at the last two finished. A female and male in close quarters. Their position seems to suggest a chase is in motion.

Hummingbird #11

Just finished this male Hummer on the tablecloth embroidery project. A zooming dude done in greens with a white neck, he has a tint of blue on his wings and tail feathers. He became quite a challenge with his wings wanting to blend-in with the body till I did the final highlighting yellow on the top surface of his body. Without this yellow on the top surface and the black on the lower sufaces, it was all wanting to look undefined and kind of blurry.
