Museum cloak one week on

Gradually it grows, row on row. The darker feathers have given way to a pretty grey patterned feather. Looking at it now I wish I had enough dark feathers to have made the change of colour more gradual, but never mind.

  The bird has most of its back feathers of this type, very densely packed so the majority of the cloak will be of these feathers. Then I think there will be some white at the top plus kereru. I hope I can get as much done next week. It is now 45 cm and I hope to go to 110cm so I'm a third of the way there.  The middle bits can get quite tedious so I need to encourage myself somehow.
