My entry in the Bra Ha Ha event to raise money for womens’ breast health. You can see it and more creative and fun bras made by others from the Smithfield area at the Art Center @ 319. This creation was inspired by the persistant mother bird in my earlier post. Like in mother nature, we have to adapt, adjust, nurture and persist in helping all women have access to what they need for their health.
I have been inspired the last few weeks, by a little bird. SA made some new lights for the front porch. The old ones rusted and everything we saw at the stores were not interesting(this happens to me a lot). So this little bird decides to build a nest-this late in summer-inside the light fixture. We have two lights on the porch, but she had to use the one near our front door. So not we are dive bombed every time we go out the door, and we cannot turn on the lights. It is a testament to the dedication, in the beginning we tried to move the nest before it got to big. But the birds never gave up on using this exact spot. I guess we should use this lesson, even if things don’t quite work out you can still keep going. Still trying to figure what type of birds they are, anyone know what they are?
I have a new hand stitching class in Smithfield next week. We are doing a holiday bird theme, and stitching a beautiful fabric panel. Come and join us, November 18 and 25, you can find out more at the web site Art Center @ 319.
Birds are all around both indoors and out. I’m enjoying all the spring birds coming around to our little bird bath. My work has involved a lot of bird designs as well, most of it has been in applique and embroidery. I am currently working on having the designs printed on fabric yardage. It will be interesting to see where these new ideas and projects take me. Spring is bringing about several interesting changes. What is inspiring you these warmer days?
I have a new order for pillows and pouches. It is for a great place in Florida called the C.R.O.W. Clinic it is a wildlife rehabilitation facility. So, you know they want the bird art on all the items. Chickadees, Egrets and Owls are calling my name.
I have also started a new quilt project, with dye/printed fabrics. This is leading up to some new classes and workshops coming soon.
How is your week starting out? What projects do you have going on?
