A Northwest Bird Feeder 2680

Lots of birds enjoy our feeder in the winter.  Here are several that we see here in the Northwest, but maybe not all together at the same time.  Worked on a hand painted silk background, experience adding a silk applique for the roof, and learn the basic techniques of making almost life like birds using padding and needle painting.  Simple stem, couching, blanket, and straight stitches make up the feeder and greenery.  The finished design fits an 8 x 10" mat or frame.
