Little birds

Inspired by Janet Bolton's lovely work I put together some little fabric collages out of linens and cottons from my baskets. I had fun stitching these little birds the other evening.
This one is still in the beginning stages...needs lots more work...
and these are two blank slates ready for something....

Such charming little bits! Love the simplicity of them--something I always have a hard time achieving.

Thanks for your comment, Mary. I love your little birds - especially that owl. :-)

I love, love your stitched birds Mary. And you put fabric together beautifully. Speaking of fabric I have been enjoying using pieces of the fabric you sent me in my textile art. And think of you as I stich!

Beautiful, Mary. A friend of mine attended a Janet Bolton workshop and bought some of her works. They were absolutely stunning in their simplicity. I wanted to run right home, get out my Janet Bolton book and start stitching.
