Flamingo Embroidery

 You may remember back to the post where I introduced my Florida embroidery pattern.  
In that post I shared the finished marlin motif and I was beginning work on the big flamingo motif. 

I outlined and then filled the flamingo in Back Stitch
I used Satin Stitch for his eye and Double Knot Stitch for his wings:

For his legs, I used Blanket Stitch and Back Stitch, then I filled his feet in with Back Stitch:

I love these two motifs, I think they look wonderful together:

Here are the floss color numbers I used:

Hi Kim~

You are right, those two do look great together! The way the texture of the stitches make the appearance of movement is wonderful. Very well done!
