Goldfinch - embroidered by hand textile picture.
Distinctive and colourful, l always enjoy seeing a goldfinch.
This picture of a goldfinch on a branch of blossom, is worked with strands of thread on scraps of fabric. It's a method I call "drawing with threads" where the image is built up with stitches of varying lengths and different colours, adding depth and detail. It is very time consuming tho!
The piece is framed behind glass for display and protection, ready to hang. The stitched image is about 5 x 6cms and the whole item is approx 14 x 15cms.
It was photographed in natural light without the glass to show it accurately, however, screens and monitors do vary.
A lovely gift idea for a bird watcher or gardener.
I've hardly ever seen a goldfinch in our garden, so you can imagine how exciting it is when one calls in for a visit!
I watch them mainly in some old farm buildings among some woodlands, where they flit and flash among the branches, and rest briefly on the stones. Their plumage has a gorgeous contrast of colours - scarlet, glossy black, pure white and of course that golden yellow. Unmistakeable...
