The Excitement Never Ends

Background & Breast Tent Stitches
Today's progress report on Cha consists of more tent stitches.  I haven't quite finished the background area I planned to do before moving onto the bird, but all that tent stitching started to get to me, so last night I moved on and started the bird.

I made progress.  I tent stitched the small purple tail feather and started tent stitching the bird's breast.  [Jane laughs at the look on Blog readers' faces.]  I know, I know!  It's not quite what you expected from me.  But there's method in all that tent stitching.

Check the photo carefully.  Why does Jane have a cut out piece of paper attached to the bird's head with magnets...?
