Though i have not blogged in a while - i have not been idle! Here are two birds I made over the holidays ...
Broadly speaking they are like the Lesser Spotted Tattered but in different colours. The red one is using some of the seriously antique french linen i got from the antique fabric lady as LSA and some french general prints. The peach coloured one is a lovely vintage paisley - very tight woven and again french general prints. Both have leather beaks this time which i think works well. One has diamante eyes and one pearls.
I just bought a book called ' Little Birds' which has several interesting examples so expect more birdie news soon!
