Tiny Sad Bird

My craft of choice recently has been embroidery. Its small, can be done in little snatches and is oh so soothing after a long day.

This little fellow is adapted from a pattern I found on the art blog of the crazy talented Gennine (seriously check her out- so amazing!) I adapted the pattern to fit the size of hoop I wanted to use and off I went. When I finished this little fellow just looked so sad to me that I added the tears. Not sure what he is crying about though.

To get the deeper colour on the tail I mixed strands of thread from the two colours I had already used. Both artistically pleasing and thrifty (I hate wasting thread!)

What have you made this week friends?

Murmeration

 

(I wrote this poem mostly because I love to watch birds flock.)

A murmeration

undulating across the sky

dancing, swooping and soaring

following

and turning,

leading my heart-

sweeping above the clouds

towards the sun.

 

The hope of flying

holding my hand through winter.
