I had fun with this:) A little fiddly, but it was fun.
I pieced the tail together first, as a unit, then appliqued it to the background. This bird has a beak, as it was a part of the body, but the legs are left out... for now:) The colours looks darker than it is, though.
I started the ostrich block, but got waylaid by summer, vacation and knitting. Cold evenings seems to be more conducive to handsewing. I will return!
