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.

These are great! I really love crows for some reason. I put bread out often jsut so I can watch them sneak in to steal it.

Pat, these are amazing! They look so realistic. It's always fun to see what you've been up to.
