sewing inspired by art

Araina painted this cute little singing bird with her watercolor paints.

Then she made him come to life by using an old yellow sweater, felt and a needle.

Pretty good stitches I must say, especially with being only 7 years old.

I had to make one too, but mine is a baby rooster.

    I was just bragging about Araina today. This bird to be exact. I was happily suprised to see it on the Crafty Crow today. She inspires me.

    It’s Peep! (Check out Peep and the Big Wide World. A good show)

    Her stitches are better then mine were up until just a few years ago.

    So perfect for spring! We painted today too! I need to take more time for that, my girls were so happy taking “a break.” Seeing her painiting and little chick made my day!
