I have been waiting what feels like forever to post this bird for Kirby. The minute I made it I knew it was hers. It just feels like this one should belong to her. I have nicknamed it “Jail Bird”.
Kirby is a very talented artist. She is insanely good and I am so happy to know her. Seeing her work inspires me in my own. I love the way she expresses a story, event, thought or even a crazy dream. “Mistletoad” is my new favorite, FYI. –>For the record, Kirby has never been in jail! He just looks like he’s on the run<–
Several years ago Kirby gave me permission to recreate my other favorite, “Tortuga“, in fabric. Here is how far I got. I got stuck in a creative block on what to do about the quilting and flowers. The blue background has been removed. He will have yo yo’s for flowers and buttons for eyes.
My husband picked these fabrics.
