Friday afternoon after I had enough of stitching the Mahooosive dresden for the day, I tried my hand at Aneela's robin pattern ( I was gutted when I didn't get to take Aneela's class at the retreat).
I scaled up the pattern to 130% when I printed it out. I tried the couching stitch and didn't like it so I filled the breast in with a spilt stitch mixing in a bit of white. It doesn't look as good as the original, so I am going to try the couching stitch again.
