Bird of Paradise

February 09, 2012


I embroidered this Bird of Paradise during the festive break at my parents place. 

The "birds" look so majestic I think, perched above the bush looking out over the harbour.


I embroidered my bird of paradise onto some cream linen which was once a skirt with a rather large hole in it.  I found it in the bargain bin at our local thrift shop and couldn't leave it there - with it's  lovely soft, yet thick texture.

I made this embroidery into a little zippered purse.
