I don’t know why, but I have really been drawn to bird-related imagery recently. Just before moving house, I started working on this small embroidery, which I charted from an illustration by Jay van Everen (from the book ‘The Laughing Prince’ by Parker Fillmore, c. 1921):
I completed it after the move, and although I’m not entirely happy with the lower left quarter, I can’t imagine re-charting/re-stitching any time soon, so this will suffice, for now! I thought the adaptation worked really well, overall. 🙂
(I will probably release the chart in zine form, at some as yet unspecified future point.)

Maybe the bird imagery is a subliminal link to your recent “nesting” focus :). Whatever the reason, it’s a fun embroidery design.
This is a really cool image and project!
