Stitchin' a Puffin

Recently I have started to work on a series of Cornish seabirds as a homage to the place where I am called to spend time whenever I can.
The first piece can be seen here .
The second is nearly complete:
Machine and hand stitch on paper and fabric

I'm not sure what Smartie thinks I'm up to but he likes to sleep near these birds to keep his beady (sleepy) eye on them!


  1. A series? Ooooooooh how wonderful! You know I was quite taken with that first one and the second is absolutely fabulous as well.
    Can't wait to see the next one to join the flock!

  2. What a brilliant idea, love a good Series!
    Can't wait to see your Oyster Catcher, the sound and sight of this bird always takes me back in time to a holiday in Scotland....
    happy days!

    Happy May Day!

  3. Really like the textures you have there.

  4. The contrast of the clear lines of the bird against the unstructured textures of the background is just lovely.

  5. This is great Clare, I love his crinkly, paper world. X

  6. The mixture of textures and colours in the background is wonderful and the puffin is fab!

  7. Great puffin and a beautiful collage!
