Mail Art Project - Week Six


"Goldfinch"

Hand dyed cotton, block printed and machine quilted. Screen printed goldfinches have been fused and machine stitched in place.

The Thermofax screen of the birds is from a photo I took in our backyard. We get a lot of Goldfinches at our feeders in the summer. They are all gone now, though.

What a good idea to make a thermofax print. The cards are lovely. And goldfinch will come back next year, so don't worry about that!

Fabulous! I love all of your birds.

Don't worry, the goldfinches arrived here safe and sound and are chowing down on thistle seed outside my window!
