Earth Bird


Another 'new to me' bird has arrived in my studio.  Around here he's known as the "Earth Bird".  He is covered in 'earth shaded' feathers. 

Sitting here in squelching heat and humidity this bird decided to skip Summer and go directly to Fall.

Wish it was that easy, don't you? 

Again I thank Doreen Frost for this design. She has certainly kept my fingers and punch needle busy!!

A Yellow Winged Blue Bird

Hmmm  -- you say you've never heard of, let alone seen, a Yellow Winged Blue Bird???  Oh my...

I'm so glad that I can introduce this new species of bird.  Related to the "Love Grows" design by Doreen Frost this little bird has come to life here in my studio. 

So much fun to work -- and to play with. 

 It seems to me that this is the perfect time of the year to discover ornithology in the form of punch needle. 

What's going on in your studio during these hot summer days?
