For the Birds

bird

A little bird (one of two) that will go to a local gallery for a show called 'On a Wire'. It was pretty short notice; I only noticed the call for submissions on Friday so I thought, 'what could I do on short notice AND that doesn't weigh much' (submissions are required to be pretty light as they will go on an actual wire) so I thought, 'embroidery!' everybody likes embroidery. I have a zombie bird also but he'll be the next post. I now remember the reason why I don't do embroidery very often; it is VERY time consuming. This is a very small piece but it took about three hours to do every single stitch!
