Hummingbird and beginning of a blackwork halfsleeve

Customer had quite an ugly looking hummingbird on the back. She wanted to have the hummingbird tho and some other things mixed in as well. So I suggested to cover up the old bird and make a new one with all the extras.
This kind of layering been in in my to-do-wish-list for some time now.

 

 

Also started working on yet another freehand blackwork halfsleeve. This is just the beginning here:
