Nuthatch and Hawthorn - hand stitched picture

Love this


A detailed study of a Nuthatch among some Hawthorn leaves and berries.

The image is built up using individual strands of embroidery thread, and the branch is formed from a piece of satin ribbon. It’s a slow process, but it does show lots of details, I like the tiny twinkle in the bird’s eye, and the light catching the shiny berries.

The stitched work is about 4x4cms and the finished frame is just over 14x14cms. I photographed it in natural light and without the glass for clarity, but remember that screens vary. With the glass in place and a hook on the back, it’s ready to display.

A lovely gift for a bird-watcher, gardener or a treat for yourself...


I’m really fond of the Nuthatch that visits our garden, it’s so agile and likes to dart down the tree trunk, usually head-first.
