So, here is the bird in question:
This is another wallhanging inspired by our recent trip to Costa Rica. All of the fabrics are my hand dyed silk, but the background I had a bit of trouble getting just the right color, so I first painted it with Pebeo Setacolor and then over dyed that. I had heard somewhere that painted fabrics wouldn't work with Wonder Under, but I have had no problem. I am having a terrific time thread painting on this one. There are three colors Sulky Sliver in the bird, to allow for a little more shading.
These are two pictures I took outside of the President's Gallery at Brenau University yesterday afternoon. I just love the architecture. The building on the far left (you can see it better in the second photo) houses the Pearce Auditorium where we have attended many a concert, ballet recital and musical. Brenau began as a women's college but is now coed. They also offer a program for seniors, Brenau University Learning and Leisure Institute or BULLI. C takes many classes there, and I am about to begin some conversational Spanish.
OK, I'm off to do a bit of shopping and can hardly wait to get home and get busy on my bird. Any ideas for names? I'm sorta stuck on this one.
