So my birds were not finished at Art and Soul as I had hoped they would be, but that's because I had a lot to learn about seeing all the colors in an image so that I could create the picture onto fabric. On Friday I worked most of the afternoon on finishing the embroidered birds. This kind of free-style embroidery is certainly a lot of fun, but trying to go from an image to thread painting was difficult for me. I really have to stop and look at all the different colors involved. Remember a few days ago I said I had wanted to turn the bird motif into a card for my husband. well here's the results and the process I used to apply the birds to a card.

I am so glad to have finished up the embroidered birds. If I had left them as a UFO (unfinished object) it would have really bugged me...not that I don't have several dozen ufo's on the shelves, but this one was important as I had an idea in my brain that just wouldn't sit quietly.
Be on the look out in a few days for some information on the next class I went to while at Art and Soul...It's a UFO right now, but that's okay as it will take some time to finish it up. I can't wait to give you the link to the teacher. You will be amazed with her work. In the meantime, visit Janne's web page and enjoy all the art and interesting tabs to visit.
