Fiber Work

I've been focusing on fiber pieces lately and hope to spend at least a few more months with that focus.  I like how working on one piece usually gives me ideas for the next.  Inspired by African fiber work, I have been doing a range of pieces that are centered around couching pieces of fabric.    Here is a bit of a wall hanging I'm working on:

I have also been having a great time making little fabric birds out of vintage, recycled, and found fabrics.  I start with a base of fabric I hand painted to give them a graffiti look and do final scribble lines of machine and hand stitching.
