A few weeks ago I purchased a new book called “Corvus – A life with birds” by Esther Woolfson. It sounded interesting as it talks about her life with birds after her daughter rescued a fledgeling rook. I don’t know why I like crows and rooks and ravens so much, but I do. I find them interesting and love to see how they interact. The other day I was outside Home Depot heading for my car; right in front of it, there were two huge crows, eating some bits of dead animal. I was so sorry I didn’t even have my phone to take a picture!
My work has featured crows lately, and this last piece I worked on over the weekend has one done with a photo transfer on ATP. I wanted to see what it would look like on that background color, as I have a larger piece in mind in those colors. My last post had photos of some of the fabrics and the threads. The piece is fully quilted now, all 15 x 62″ of it.
But this small piece is 10″ x 10″ and ready to be mounted.
And a detail of the hand-embroidery at the top:
Don’t have a name for it yet … I’ll have to come up with something soon. If you think of a good one, leave me a comment. If I pick yours, you’ll get a surprise in the mail, so leave an email so I can contact you …
In the meantime, keep quilting.
