A Strange Sighting in NH

This is not something you see everyday in New Hampshire.  A pink flamingo (not plastic) in my garden.  This is the mystery solved from the last post.  I have been working on some birds from Abigail Glassenberg's wonderful book The Artful Bird.  I had such fun putting together the pieces of the pattern and seeing this bird come to life.  I had envisioned something really cool for this load of hand dyed cheesecloth I picked up at a flea market.

I love the way the looped winged turned out.  I hand painted linen to make the body and beak so that I could get just the right variations of pink.  A little bit of vintage feedsack fabric was used for the gussets.

Now on to the swans!

What did I make today? More Cards

I've spent a peaceful rainy afternoon making crepe paper flowers tucked into paper vases.   This would make a lovely card for almost any occasion.  For sale in my etsy shop.   Happy Springtime to you!
