A Bird Builds its Nest

Petit à petitl'oiseau fait son nid
(Bit by bit, a bird builds its nest)

I decided to branch out on my own and try a needle painting embroidery of a bird (thrush). I can't decide which is easier, picking all the colours before you start or picking them out as you go along. Either way it's a real challenge: not comforting like having a colour/stitch guide in an exercise book.
Of course it would have been EASIER if I had just followed this process instead of just eyeballing it. Oh well, lesson learned.

Bit by bit I learn and add to my art nest.
