What's on the machine

This is the little wholecloth so far. It's about 14" X 10". I need to decide what to do as a filler which will be scaled down small enough and still look good. I hadn't realized how difficult it would be to do such tiny feathers. Some of the little lobes of the feathers are a quarter the size of my little fingernail.

And I've finished the background on this one. Today I'll wash it to remove my black quilting guidelines and block it before it's ready to have it's binding on. The thread in the background is a variegated Madeira Polyneon and the couched thread is something a friend got in Hong Kong.
As I write, I've just realized that I don't know if the colour in the thread runs or not (gulp), watch this space........
