Time flies!

Watching the bird life in Dungog,  provides the opportunity to see how time flies!

Along with my colleagues in the Daughters of Dowling embroiders group, I was inspired to create this piece.

The bird was composed entirely of different fabrics fused onto a supportive fabric, and then stitched onto the background fabric.  Machine and hand stitches were worked into this piece to portray gum leaves.

All beading was hand stitched.  This is a change of style for me and I enjoyed exploring this application.
