This little lovely was hand stitched and bead by hand. It is backed with felt, stitched and beaded. Then backed with a second piece of felt to cover all work on the back side. My influence for this bird came from Dot's blog. You can find her blog in my "blogs worth watching" list. She makes beautiful felted and beaded birds and sells them on ETSY. My version is slightly different.

Yes, you heard right. My kids are out for the summer. As my hands begin to shake and my eyes begin to blur I am thinking to myself "Crud"! Now a summer full of fighting and computer hogging and whining there isn't anything to do. Since I live in one of the most unforgiving places in the world weather wise . There is not much for them to do but go to one of the hundreds of malls built here. Or Skii Dubai which costs an arm and a leg for artificial snow. We could travel but since there are 6 of us, airfare costs an arm and a leg to go to the states. "Crud"!

I have been slowly immersing myself into the wonderful world of beading. It doesn't hurt that my Dad lives next to one of the largest beading shops in the world!! So while I was there this spring I stocked up. I have made two beaded birds that resemble Ms. Dot's. I have made a Dotee doll for my daughter and have recently made some Needle books and matching pincushions.
I am finishing a pieced and hand quilted table runner. Pictures will follow soon.
Have a lovely Day.
