So here's my first owl project. I'm going to stitch the "Whooo Gives a Hoot?" with the full moon. The fabric is called "Haunted" by Picture This Plus and it is luscious!
Here's something else that is luscious.
My small collection of bird feathers.
A mix of Flicker, Steller's Jay, Woodpecker, and Quail feathers.
These are all big feathers - Crow, Turkey Vulture, wild Turkey, and I'm not sure what.
I have a nice assortment of Steller's Jay feathers, but not even one Scrub Jay feather. I think my favorite is the small one in the center with the stripes.
Here's a photo of a Steller's Jay as a reminder what the bird looks like. He's hanging out with a Hairy Woodpecker.
These are Blue Jay feathers and are a gift from Frances of A Symphony of Stitches. She knows that I am a Birder with a capital "B" and sent me a wonderful note, a photo of 'her' Blue Jay and this small collection of feathers. Frances has a great blog - take a moment to check it out and admire her Halloween Tree.
Feathers are amazing, especially iridescent ones.
Here's my male Anna's Hummingbird turned to the left.
Now he looks at me straight on and the feather's catch the light and come alive!
