Fanciful birds





This is as close as I could come to the little birds on the postcard. I embroidered them on felt, cut them out and appliqued them to the block and added a little stuffing from the back of the block. Then I edged them with gold... I want the branch to be gold braid embellished with gold thread and gold beads.. I'm still thinking about leaves. They should be 3-dimensional like the birds and branch so that leaves stumpwork, beaded leaves or just bead leaves. It's making the decisions that is fun!!! I know little birds has nothing to do with our 2009 Challenge but I just love doing birds....

Very lovely, Gerry! And remember that "wings" is a theme for one month, so the birds could fit into that category. They are so cute!! Hugs, Cathy

Your little birds set my heart all a twitter! So sweet. Do you do cardinals as well? These little love birds and cardinals are my favorites. I can tell that doing challenging work and succeeding is very rewarding to you. Let your needles fly!
