Another Enchantment Bird

I just love this little bird appliqued with red silk my friend brought from India, a batik wing and wool tail. Valdani pearl cotton 8 was used to satin stitch the beak and tet le boef on the tail feathers with cast-on around the wing, drizzles on the head and bullion legs in Thread Gatherer silken pearl 5.  I think the bead eye is perfect.

Only 2 birds left to finish.  It's snowing today, giving me a good excuse to sit by the fireplace and stitch.

If you read this blog regularly, you will know that I love the Australian style of quilt making and especially the Material Obsession store.  Take 5 minutes and click Here to watch a short video. This looks like such a fun day!  It took about 10 minutes for my computer to load the video, just enough time to choose the bead for the bird's eye, then I played it through again without stops.


  1. This is a fabulous bird. I love Material Obsession. I visit their blog regularly and would love to go there sometime.

  2. Well, ditto what em said! Your bird is amazing (as usual)! You are ultra creative! XO
