Stitch in Progress

Working on a little robin, embroidery stitching feather details on a textile base of recycled fabrics. 

The eyes always seem to bring the bird to life, intensifying it's expression and personality. I like adding eyes early in the process. Their sparkle gives me hints and ideas about just which details and embellishments will bring out the bird's unique persona.

 Whether in paint or hand stitch, expressive eyes always tell a story.
