I’ve been working on lots of animals recently, from chickens to owls, but this is one of my favourites:

I’m using the threads more in my work now, rather than simply relying on layered fabrics. It’s proving a fun step on and getting a ‘furry’ look is great fun. :smile:

Heidi that is fabulous,…painting with thread…clever lady
I have a relist today as I have been out all day…first time out for 3 weeks…now to hibernate until May and just paint…lol

Your flowers are lovely @teabreaks! (Un)fortunately the Highland Cow sold today at a fair. Disappointed as I was going to display him in my bedroom but happy of course for the sale and glad he has gone to a lovely new Home! I need to list a couple of other pictures I have recently made and not got round to listing yet,

Including this rather dashing owl!

well done on the sale Heidi x

Do illustrated cards count as art? Ive recently started drawing, Im really enjoying it and I love water colouring(although Im not too good at it) sorry I can’t add a pic but have a look at my card section in my shop if you like.

Hi Brenda, not today I dont think, not through Folksy anyway. BTW, whats the ‘front page’?

This cockerel hasn’t been framed yet and so is not in my shop, but thought you’d like to see him (can’t remember if I’ve shown him elsewhere - sorry if so!!)

Sure, I found a similar image on a free digital wallpaper site, thought it might make a nice watercolour painting. It’s not one I would put up for sale as technically it’s not my original idea.
