curly bird and q.b. owls
Happy Saturday. Last weekend, my dear mother-in-law gave me her ENTIRE (unused) collection of tapestry threads (SCORE!!!) so...I sat with a piece of linen and, stealing time here and there, made these embroideries. The first one is two birds, for my daughter. The baby bird has curly hair and the more plain mother does not. Like us.
The second little thread sketch is actually an ode to the brilliance of the artist/writer Quentin Blake and his book "Mister Magnolia". (We have recently ordered from the library ALL available Quentin Blake kids' books.) Mister Magnolia lives with owls. Here are two.
I have not decided what to do with these birds -- any thoughts?
