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.
