    Birds of Paradise

    Here is my version of Eileen Bahring Sullivan's "Birds of Paradise." It was quite a project - all those narrow, pointy leaves, but I'm very happy with the outcome. I think I recall that one of the QB members has this wall hanging for her avatar.

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Your wallhanging is very striking! I like the contrast of the crisp solids against the pattern (batik?) frame.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much fabric.
