Yeah, it's another crow


I used one of my digital drawings as the basis for a small fabric piece.  Here is the digital version: 


I am working on some smaller stuff, looking toward a couple sales events in the fall. It really feels good to be working on these things that are smaller and have no theme or size requirement. Feels like a big "whew"! I am liking the idea of small pieces — the crow is 18" square — with bigger than life-size things. I had some fun with the stitching on this crow. It is hard to see in the photo above. Here is a detail.


Still hard to see. 

I am working on a giant pine cone now.

  1. It always amazes me how you can turn these "black" birds into works of art! Great piece!

  4. Your new crow is gorgeous. The purple stitching seems iridescent just like real feathers.

  5. The dark bird feels radiant- the black/dark blue feels almost sparkly.

  7. I like the fabric version better. I like how you did the stitching and added the white dots (french knots?).
