A bird flew in



Today a different textile painting. This bird I made last year during the easter holidays and now it has become a another textile painting. The background is knitted with bamboo yarn, which has really a very soft feeling. I embroidered the bird on the knitting in such a way that the knitting became the airstream. The history of this bird you can read here.



Have a lovely day and please feed the birds in your backyard because they are hungry and the snow isn't disappearing for another week.

I love and remember this bird. It looks perfect flying in the knitted airstream! Love bamboo yarn too.

We feed the birds all year in our backyard...we enjoy them so much. I feel so sorry for them when it is snowing or icy and freezing outside...the poor things! XOXO
