My last post was about a little robin I had embroidered... this is only a short one, but after the really positive feedback I got on the Robin, I thought I'd try something a little different, and bead a blue tit instead. For those of you who aren't native to the UK, blue tits are tiny little birds, which are rather partial to peanuts, and can be found in British gardens.
In a fit of craziness, I decided to bead it in size 15 beads, they're about 1.2mm across, so they're REALLY small.
I was very pleased with the shape of my blue tit... I am totally rubbish at drawing, so the fact that the shape I drew actually looks like a bird, and was actually recognisable as a blue tit was a real triumph!
So, without further ado, here is my little beaded blue tit! I hope you like him as much as I do. I will be wearing him to work tomorrow - I turned him into a broach.
