Great Tit- embroidery- plant dyed silks
I have seen Jenny McCabe’s work around Flickr and etsy for a little while now, and I love it!  I have a big affinity towards birds and she stitches them up nicely.  Her color palette speaks to me and I love that she has pieces of work for your walls but for you as well with these great brooches.

I’ve really been getting into freehand machine embroidery lately, and she is an awesome inspiration for me.  You should check out her work on her etsy and swing by her blog.

In my opinion, birds never go out of style.  There are so many varieties, interpretations, styles…..the possibilities are endless when it comes to birds in art.  My main craft is embroidery so I am going to be doing a post every week on different trends, styles, and just plain cool things going on with embroidery.

Sewn bird fly home embroidery

Finally, here we have a piece by laurabailliedesigns2 that I am IN LOVE with.  Ok, so the detail is awesome and I love the colors.  But what I really really like love is that she used a little bit of lace detailing on the belly of the bird.  It just adds another dimension that is so perfect.  It’s great seeing the use of scraps of crafty materials going towards something different and exciting!  Check out her blog at laurabailliedesigns.blogspot.com for more from her!

Check back next week for more embroidery work featured.  What kinds of trends and things would you like to see featured?
