ATCs about birds or feathers

I joined an all-fabric ATC swap at Stitching Fingers.  For November the theme was birds or feathers.  Here is a picture of the ATC I received from Patricia who  lives in Crumlin Village, Dublin.  It is a thread painting of the North Atlantic Puffin.  They live off the coast of both Ireland (her home) and Maine (my home). That is fun.

I made her this ATC named "A Murder of Crows."  When I was attending the Nancy Crow workshop in Auburn NY I saw lots of crows.  Come to find out Auburn has been the winter home of thousands of crows for the last 100 years or so.  Here is a link for more information about the crows in Auburn.  I placed a black feather on some scraps from a quilt I made named "I am the Center of the Universe."  It turned out a bit wonky and at first that upset me but then I decided that was a "design element."  LOL

This ATC is left over from a swap with Veronica at Fiber Antics.  I have held on to it since last February because I love it so. Since it also had a feather on it, I have sent it off to Patricia.
Enjoy Patricia
