Freebird (FAMM birds challenge)





Over at Fiber Arts & Mixed Media the monthly challenge is Birds..the winner gets a new book from C&T called Little Birds which looks really good. I have wanted to have a go at making a 3d fabric bird for quite a while now. I have made this bird out of my hand dyed fabric and added a little bead for its twinkling eye. Underneath the bird are strips of fabric, beads and heart with the embroidered word "Free". I love watching all the birds that come to visit my garden and birds feature quite a lot in my work. Here is a little poem I have written called "Free"...

Free as the dark peaceful night
Free like birdsong
Free just me and you riding fast on the Triumph Bonnie
Free laughing with friends
Free from worry
Free from negativity
Free from criticism
Free to be just me
Free......
