In this post, we will embroider the body of the bird.
As I suspected, I did not use all my first choice and finally, I used the colors DMC 3799, 535, 3022, 372, 3821, 3822 and 746 and I discarded definitively the colors 3820, 677 and 371.
Preceding the pictures, you will find a drawing indicating the direction of the stitches. You will see that there are 3 different directions to respect.
I myself had some difficulties with the left part of the body, the one that is under the wing. As you will see on the pictures I had to undo the upper part and keep only the dark part embroidered at the beginning. So I redid it by better shaping the stitches to get the roundness of the body of the bird and I added the lightest stitches that overflow on this part all last.
