Pink Bird atc

The theme for the May atc swap on stitchin fingers was anything to do with birds, nests, feathers or eggs.  I fused a piece of green organza onto a scrap piece of drapery material with a soldering iron & also made a bunch of leaves.  I couched down a piece of wool for the branch & stitched the leaves & some beads along it. I also fused a couple pieces of pink organza together for the bird & made the designs on it just with simple straight stitches.  I did some free motion sewing with metallic thread along the top. It's quite shiny green in colour but this photo makes it look rather dull & muddy.
