Blog 19th - October Bird

Oh, Hi.
I have been working on October Bird.

What do you think?

I am getting close to done. See up at the top of this picture? That is silver paper. (Chocolate wrapper - fairly traded chocolate I'll have you know.) I just feel so strongly about using reconfigured trash in my pieces; it's pretty, it's free, there's just so much of it! I need something more... the picture isn't quite balanced ... I will go and keep beading. I wish you Monday morning occupations that you love as much as I love mine.

This is so beautiful! What is the pink design on the lower right? Ribbon? Fish scales? Thanks for sharing your art.

The fabric itself - permanent marker on white cotton broadcloth - with a feather stitch in a darker pink sewing thread over it.
When I am done with the piece I will show it entirely, and then you'll understand it better ... for now you must be happy with snippetts - !
