Day 142 — Stitching — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty was an exquisite array of fabric, textures and thread. It was an unfinished piece at Sophie Standing’s Textile Art. She used fabric and bits of laces and threads to make the wings on of the secretary bird. The overall effect of her work, even in fun colors is extremely realistic. Be sure to check out her site for more work.

The secretary bird stands about 4 and a half feet tall. Is a raptor and eats snakes. Maybe that is what i need for my yard.
