Altered Spring Bird...

In lieu of Spring weather I made this altered lace bird. With all the snow and sleet and slush and rain and more snow I just had to feel like I could help Spring arrive.
The base is canvas I cut freehand. Then I layered muslin and various laces which I sewed randomly. A muslin heart and yellow feather for the wing. A small brown button for the eye.
Now I have a lovely Spring Bird to help me await the songs of real birds when the weather permits.
I think I shall make some more altered lace birds. I love how tweet (sweet) they are.
Happy hearing of all the wonderful warm weather most of you are experiencing.
Our local newspaper headline actually said, SNOWPRISE! We usually get snow into May but this winter has been especially harsh. We have had storm after storm after storm.
Happy week ahead my bloggy friends...

  3. What a sweet way to deal with all that snow! Your little birdie is adorable. I love all the layers you added and the feather.

  9. I hope your sweet bird will soon bring you some warm and wonderful sunshine...hang in there.

  10. Your little Spring bird is such a sweetie!

    We've had a really harsh winter too and have lost so many plants to frost - it looks as though two of our trees may not have survived either - we keep looking for signs of new buds, but nothing yet!

    I like that newspaper heading - you have to laugh sometimes! Hope your weather improves very soon x
