This is a basic feather design:
When you draw out a double or hollow spine
and fill it with a design...
you get a feather with a filled spine
Feather with a Filled Spine
This is how I draw and stitch it out:
I try to avoid back tracking
when stitching out a design,
but sometimes it can't be helped.
I do back track in number 5 on the left side,
to get back down to the base to draw the feathers
on the left side of the spine.
Check out what is happening in the back yard:
Climbing Rose on the patio...
The yearling cattle come up to the back yard fence:
They want to know if Gunnr can come out and play?
Yes, Gunnr is always ready to play with the calves!
My favorite yearling calves.....this year:
Life in the back yard......beautiful this time of year!
