Hummingbird in Oaxaca Tree of Life

While in Tucson last week for Thanksgiving, we visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum's hummingbird enclosure. The beautiful hummingbirds I saw reminded me of the one that resides on my current stitching project, Oaxaca-Tree of Life. I had such fun creating the tail feathers with Rainbow Flair and one ply of matching Splendor Silk. Then I added a few stitches of Fuzzy Stuff which I also used for the head. Kreinik Braid was used for the beak; Sparkle Rays for the breast; Floss and Splendor complete the wings and neck and the final touch was a bead for the eye.

  1. Fascinating! I love the tail feathers in particular and how you are using a huge variety of threads and ribbons and beads on this piece. Makes it really come to life.

    I am dying to see the whole thing finished so I can look at all the details in context. Stitch faster! LOL
