Stitched bird …

My favourite little bird standing on a half assembled box … he may be small but he fills his space well …

As my work is quite intensely stitched, there is a limit to size. As one who is always drawn to the detail and does not always take in the larger picture, it suits me just fine …

I particularly like the line the little bird draws with his silhouette …

Stitch and create …

Always a story to tell, these two pieces have a limerick behind them too!

The limericks are written by a friend with my embroidered illustrations.

The first is a tale of Buster the rabbit, who one lonely night phoned all his friends. The second is about Colin, a large collared dove, who falls in love with Coleen. They need a little bit of tweaking yet, but I would love your comments…
