This drum takes its inspiration from the other tomato pieces I'm releasing with this auto. As you may know, tomatoes belong to the plant family known as solanaceae, which translates to "the nightshade plant." The meaning of this isn't clear, from what I've read, but they could have been given this moniker because some plants in this family bloom at night. Regardless, this drum was named for the black-and-pink bird carrying the cherry tomato vine The model was stitched on 36 count Vintage Beeswax from R&R Reproductions, using 1 strand of floss over 2 threads.
