Eagle Block detail

Here is the first detail of the eagle block. I have forgotten what this thread is called but got it from Evening Star. It is couched down. You can also see some DMC (black and red) worked over the squares (to the left), not so easy to see in the picture is some rayon thread (red) to define feathers. Black DMC defines his face. More details to come.

Here is the whole block. I have begun work on his tail feathers.

I don't know what it's called either, but it's certainly sparkley! What a lot of work already on this one.
