Skyros Man 8

I have the scent of a finish for my second Skyros panel, so made good progress on the eighth Skyros man. Again, he is worked with the grain at a slant and again, I used Bokhara stitch (fast becoming my favourite ever stitch!) on his jacket.

As you see, I am also making progress on the small surrounding motifs.

Here he is, finished, and in context. A few motifs to finish and the panel can be stitched into the chair!

I love the vitality of the men!

I like that little bird quite a bit too! The whole thing looks so cheerful, as Lyn said as well. Onwards!

Love all your Skros Men and will have to try the bokhara stitch on something.
