Details: Mother swan is building her nest with twigs I found outside and hand sewed to the background nest that is heavily machine sewn free motion style using brown variegated thread.
Her body was sewn by bobbin thread (silver metallic) on the reversed mirror image print/copy of their photo. Then cut out and sewn down raw edged applique style to the background.
The background is two pieces of cotton fabric from my stash for grasslands and water. Both heavily machine sewn free motion style in greens and blues. Silver metallic thread top sewn as reflection from the sun on the water. More twigs are added to the sides to frame the picture. Bound in turquoise left over fabric from NYP!
I will be gone over the weekend, visiting my son and his family in Oregon. DH and Henry will be here holding down the fort. I have no doubt I will have tons to share come Monday upon my return.
Happy Mother's Day to all who celebrate this either for yourselves or your own mothers in life or spirit memory. That's one thing we all have in common, we all came from mothers!
Enjoy Your Weekend!
