Song Birds & More Coming to Life in My Studio
After playing around with the sewing machine and free-motion embroidery to create a few Raven postcards for the Raven/Poe challenge, I've found myself going through hundreds of my song bird photos with the idea in mind to free motion embroider them and create an entire series based on my photos & embroideries. So far, you've seen the "Raven/Nevermore" and "Raven by the Sea" created for the challenge. Tufted Titmouse has also been shared here in my blog. Here are some of my newest songbird embroidery creations.
