Bird and Wildlife Stitched on Fabric

Wow, some of these were a bit challenging to stitch. Fortunately the herons were easy as having stitched them several times, I know their shape fairly well. The Canada goose required some additional shading to aid in identifying it's species. The moose, well I just love it and I hope you do to. These textile cards are for sale at Creston Card and Stationery http://crestoncard.com/ in Creston, BC but I can also create you something similar if you are interested. Just send me an email to egidman@kootenay.com
 
Definitely I am going to be painting some fabric with chickens in mind as I look forward to stitching a few 'chicken' poses. The fox is very different being stitched over a colourful place in the fabric but when I was thinking I would like to try stitching another fox, I saw this fabric and said to myself 'Why not give this a try." What do you think?

'Canada Goose'

'Blue Heron'

'Blue Heron Strutting'

'A Big Chicken'


'My Moose'

'Colourful Fox'

'Red Silos' - not birds or wildlife but it seemed to 'kinda' fit with this grouping.
 
Today is the first day of spring and I will have some spring flowers painted on textile to show you very soon. 

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the 'It's Time for Colour' Quilt show came to Creston this week. You can read about the national project here. http://cqacanadianquilting.blogspot.ca/p/blog-page.html  What a delight to see the some of the  quilts from across Canada come to our town thanks to the Canadian Quilt Association.

Love these pieces, Eileen - that moose is stunning, and the chicken made me grin. There's something very comical about chickens and roosters!
