    It is easy to see Crowbeak hails from the distant highlands where the bird people roam. As a people, they're known for their skill in leatherwork and the quality of their music, but she always had an interest in textiles. Having learned all her people had to teach, she set out and wandered far and wide, picking up some hand-to-hand combat skills for defense along the way. She made her way to the guild hoping to learn new techniques unknown to her people.

    Color SwapCrowbeak ColorSwap.jpgPrinted Cross Stitch kit; originally red and green.
    Color TheoryCrowbeak ColorTheory.jpgSilk & Ivory brand blend of silk and merino wool. Colors big canary (156), zucchini (09), lily pad (210), blue chip (17), cornflower (102). Big canary for some fun contrast
    Design: Inspired by ColorCrowbeak Design InspiredByColor.jpgWild Celtic Knot Design using Enui color theory palette.
    Artist Studies: Durene JonesCrowbeak Studies DureneJones.jpgPattern I picked it because I wanted to study the backstitching layout and got bonus #12 perle cotton and shading contrast. For shading, I have a better idea of how different I want my shades to be for my own designs. For #12 perle, I never want to use it in cross stitch again; I see what she was going for but don’t feel like the effect is as strong as I’d like for the pain in the butt using it was. For the backstitching, though, I really got to see how having it cut across different color blocks still leads to the eye mostly seeing a more nuanced shape. Hizzah!
    Stitch SpotCrowbeak StitchSpot.jpgcomfy chair, nice ottlite, space for threads and drinks and stuff. Not pictured: TV for watching things
    Topsy TurvyCrowbeak TopsyTurvy.jpgI always go / then \, so this time I used coin flips for each stitch to determine first leg direction. Had trouble keeping stitches even. I could see this being useful for naturally uneven things like tree leaves, grass, or fur, but I won’t be using it all the time
    Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:Llama Bobbins If I had enough money I could spend $1.71 on single bobbins for all my thread, I'd buy the hell out of these cute little llama bobbins and get custom boxes made to store them in out of wood with plexiglass windows in the tops.
    Revisit a UFOCrowbeak RevisitUFO.jpgI let this one lapse a while. It’s a silhouette of Ursula, one of Disney’s best villains. You can kinda see a line reflecting the fact my stitching is different than it was a couple of years ago. I will hope that once I frame it, most people won’t notice.
    International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:Kogin Noir As far as I can tell, this person doesn't sell any of their designs, but they do make their own. Their medium is koginzashi, which is a traditional type of Japanese embroidery which, IIRC, has origins similar to blackwork in that it was mostly a cheap way to elevate clothing with decoration. It's worked as a series of straight lines (kinda like satin stitches) in geometric patterns.
