More Birds

When Judy had her operation, she woke up with "3 Little Birds" by Bob Marley. The story must have influenced me to add a golden bird and a black one to the blue bird. The variegated floss is perfect for this kind of picturesque "emquiltery". Apart from the black matter, all cloth came from Jude. It is a fun piece, and I have to take care and remember my duties like going to the last session of gymnastics, hopefully for good, and I mustn't forget to have breakfast before going -- which I actually sometimes do! Or I get carried away by my friends' beautiful blogs...

Beautiful - I wonder if they all have different qualitites? They seem to be parts of a fable.

AWESOME YO! As my son would say. When I saw you place the first bird, I wondered how you were going to finish it, then you showed the first stitches and I knew it was going to be fabulous but never in my dreams did I think it would be this FABULOUS!
YEA, AWESOME YO!

This piece is so beautiful and touching; you've incorporated so much emotion and movement in the postures of the birds.

I was very moved by your mother's story. We need to remember how war affects the most powerless, the women and children.

Just gets better and better - that bird needed some friends...and you have really given them individual personalities. Your embroidery is gorgeous.
