Tail feathers embroidery

Started on the tail feathers

Using zig-zag stitch, and with the piece turned at the direction I want the strokes to go, I have been adding stitching to the tail feathers on the two birds.

I found that the thread kept shredding, so experimented with tension, needle size and type, and finally decided that the brand was the problem, after talking to my friend, Julie from Julie’s Superior Threads .

She suggest I try using a different brand. We’ll see what happens.
