owl and songbird progress

I  spent the fourth of july holiday way upstate sewing. It was misty and moist and super hot.

I worked on some pieces I started 2 years ago – made from antique garment linings.

I’ve also been working on some  other songbirds, I’m finishing the teal bird this evening.

And this pink girl-   also begun years ago then put away and finished lately. I guess some things need to percolate. She has a fancy  bustled bottom.


  1. I’ll admit I have a thing for birds, but these are something special. Truly inspiring work!

    Breathtaking! Your birds are incredible, but this one is incredible-plus!

  3. So lovely-the teal is such a special color-reminds me of all the indigo buntings we’ve been seeing lately!

  4. Oh, I love the bustled bottom! Worth waiting for 😀

  5. your work is breathtaking! I am partial to the birds they are all precious and the one with the ruffled bottom, so cute!

  6. Love your work so very much. The little pink bird is so cute (love her ruffly bottom and your 9 year old black bird. I especially love his eyes and “feathered” crest. It’s easy to see that you love what you’re doing—so do all of us who ädmire your absolutely beautiful work!!!
