    Ok fellas... I have made another block, but don't know if it is made well enough for all of your wonderful blocks. This is my first time appliquing with a satin stitch and it is obvious. I have attatched a picture so that you all can be the judges for me. I know I will get better every time, but just don't know if I will be able to get that good before the blocks have to be shipped.

    Forgot to say, I still have to add the eyes and beak.

    This is the close up to some of the stitching. I do have wonder under below it so it won't unravel or anything (except for the crown and tail... they are supposed to get a little ravely)
