Completed Eastern Bluebird

Back in 2014 (was it really that long ago?), I promised to share my Eastern Bluebird in more detail and clearer photos. When life intervened, I misplaced the piece AND dropped off the face of the blogging world!

Oops. You can see the first two posts here and here.

I love needlepainting. It’s more meditative than working in acrylic or watercolor, as much as I love both those media. And no waiting for each layer to dry!
