I really am on to something here. This pillow came together somewhat effortlessly. I think that's because when motivated, the obstacles seem lighter. I don't often work with fabric in this way but I certainly want to. The opportunity came along with a fundraiser for our local bird rehabilitation center. I do love the birds that come to my feeder so I didn't need to look too far for inspiration. This gave me the opportunity to try fabric sketching and put together my love for needle arts and painting into one project.
