I decided to use the same color fabric as the sample, Monet. While I did decide to keep the thread color similar, I did use a different thread from the sample. I'm using Caron Waterlilies, Aubergine.
I first started with the large curl in the center, then went on to the tail.
Next, I stitched his right wing.
I continued on with his head and finished it up.

While I was writing this post I noticed a discrepancy in the photo on the chart and my stitched version. Well, I'd made a mistake. So I'm going to need to fix the large swirl in the center. Then I will continue on to his left wing.
