Chickadees 12 x 12


Here is a small piece I just finished 12" square.
The background is a gelatin plate print, machine quilted.
The chickadee is a Thermofax screen made from chickadee pictures I took at my backyard birdfeeder.
I embroidered some twigs in the beaks of a couple of the birds and added glass beads for berries.
I think this is kind of a fun little piece.

Love your chickadees!!!! You do such neat things with your thermofax machine (I'm envious). I keep looking on e-bay and counting my pennies. . . Maybe next year.

This is charming - and the stripey border is just right!
