I have been so thoroughly enjoying making birds this year. I've got them in nests, LED lit trees and on wreaths. There are some still available at Triptych for another couple of days.
Here is a special order one that I just finished.Started off with some brocade, some metallic gold cotton, metallic flat yarn and regular wool yarn, plus the pattern that I finally created to make the kind of birds that have lots of feathers!
Still experimenting with how to make wire legs so they can stand on their own.
Here are some tucked into wreaths and home decor, a new area of interest this year. Will be making more of them as each season comes upon us.
