I didn't get to sew today because I had a dentist appointment for a filling and then a doctor's appointment. Yesterday, I did add a narrow red border in the quilt as you go method, and today I did sit down and add some color to the bird and flowers with Shiva Paintsticks.
It is a little more fiddly to do a small piece with the quilt as you go method but I'm glad I did because I dd change my mind about the final border once I added the inner border and some paint. You can see a bit of the fabric I will use for the final border in the background. I do still have to add black stitching for the eye and hopefully I'll have time for some sewing tomorrow.
