It sure sounds like several of you are chomping at the bit for the Hummingird Pattern from the vintage Chinese screen blog (thanks for the emails!).
I can hardly wait to stitch the design myself… and here’s the pattern.
The hummingbird can be worked in any surface embroidery method you choose, including redwork using outline stitch or stem stitch (stitched along the solid lines)worked in DMC 6-Strand Floss, with running stitch used as accents (stitched along the dashed lines).
Or, try embroidering the design in DMC Satin Floss in satin stitch to give the bird would have the same silky shimmer as the original.
