bird obsession




Seems like there's a huge bird obsession out there right now in the craft/design world and it's been going for quite a while. I am not immune to this phenomenon and have embroidered some more of my own little felt birds with the aim of turning them into a mobile...eventually. So here's the flock so far...plus a bit of inspiration from a new book I bought called "Decorative Bird Illustrations" from Dover Publications. It's packed full of lush bird illustrations, mostly quite Victorian and Edwardian in style and so very charming.

Thanks Mel, and Yes ....I can be awfully clever sometimes, no false modesty here.(We just won't mention those other not so clever times...)
