Eagle Block detail --- TAKE 2

I have to rant first off, I had this post all done, links etc. and blogger said something was left blank and of course it was not and it was lost in the process....needless to say I am not real happy right now. I could not post pictures on my other blog yesterday now this. Hugh SIGH!

Lets try this again.

As promised more details on the Eagle block I have been working on. First up the feathers, done with DMC floss, 3 strands. Fly stitch for the feather structure, detached chain for the texture, outline stitch around several of the feathers. Still more to come on this section.

The stars; first WKreinik metallic, from Evening Star Designs, couched down, this is a light blue, next (blue) 2 strands of J.P. Coats rayon in detached chain, third (red) single strand of rayon. I think I will mirror this with the remainder of the stars in this part.

Black DMC floss strenghtens the letters in the banner which reads Life..Liberty.

I also want to direct your attention to my Esty shop where I have posted 2 sets of hand crochet motifs for use in your artistic works.
