HumBird Embroidery #01

Embroidering hummingbird characters onto a tablecloth.

I started doing these kinds of projects as a child when my Grandma taught me how to embroider. Sitting in front of the TV, it is the way I survive the advertisement onslaught. Hate those commercials. I have kept most of my favorite projects including tablecloths for special occasions, pillowcases and t-shirts, but most are gifts for family like a butterfly and flowers design to my daughter-in-law, “Jamie” in South Carolina on her birthday. I have also done these (one a year) to take to the church yearly auction near Seattle for my tithing.

You may be wondering how many of these little hummingbird guys there will be on this one.  Can’t really say how many because I have put a bunch along the edge of a full size tablecloth and have not even put the flowers and branches in the design yet. I may be adding more to the mix or even taking a few out as I go. Truely an artist’s heaven as the design is figured out as I go.


Here is hummingbird number 01 just finished on “the current tablecloth”. He is orange with a white neck and green wings. I will put theother hummingbirds up as I finish them.
