A Sparrow's Sweet Song



I've been wanting to do this wee Sparrow for over a year now. I guess, that I needed to wait until just the right time. While shopping a couple of weeks ago, I came across the fabric for her dress. It needed to be inspired from the woods in my back yard. When I came across this piece, I knew that it was time to make her. I was watching Jane Austen's Persuasion last weekend and I knew just who my little Sparrow would be,. Dear Anne was sweet, beautiful and bright....yes, my sketch would take form in fabric, it was time and I was ready.
As three snowstorms hit our area this week, I was dreaming of the earthy smell of a Spring forest and the song of the birds way before the sun peeks over the mountains. I always love bringing the stuft muslin to life and each step she stole my heart. I never thought that I would capture a sparrow's looks as well as I did. She took many hours as layer, by layer her markings brought her to life. I am so very please with her and I know that she will fly away to a new home and be loved. Like any Mother though... it won't be without a tear shed.
Anne, along with her friends are on Simply Primitives as it opens tonight. Enjoy my treasures along with those of my fellows artists.

I just adore your creation of this wonderful little sparrow . It so reminds me of the old song . His Eye is On The Sparrow and I know He Watches Me . Your sweet Bird. Reminds me. Of how much God cares for us ! Is there a pattern ?

Thank you so much for your dear words~ I am ever grate for all who support, lift and inspire my work. Not every piece is a pattern... some are Art dolls and more difficult in technique. These special treasures live among many of you.
