Notes on Birds in Flight:
I just had to try the “Birds in Flight” stitch combo that wonderful basketry artist, Carolyn Zeitler, so generously shared. I used artificial sinew so I could pull off the split stitch effect, but raffia would probably be a more elegant choice for this pattern. It’s a fun combo, and now I can see more potential, and what I coulda/shoulda done better. Thanks, Carolyn!
