This piece was inspired by an owl-watching trip we took last winter to Amherst Island, Ontario. We only saw one owl in the woods, but there were zillions of very tame chickadees. These cheerful little birds swarmed us when we brought out some sunflower seeds, landing on our heads, arms and hands. Chickadees will readily come to your hand for food once you assure them you don't have a hankering for chickadee fricasee! We were in the depths of winter and spent a long time feeding those sweet, hungry little songbirds.

This original drawing is pen-and-ink on translucent vellum, coated with clear polymer medium (to give it some strength), then painted with thinned acrylics. The backing is bright teal green felt with needle-felted wool roving in green, yellow and reddish-purple shades. The drawing is sewn to the backing with light teal embroidery floss. The hanging loops are iridescent blue/gold/purple bugle beads on strong fishing line. The piece measures 5.75" w x 4.75" h, and a second piece of felt has been glued on the backing.

The entire piece was made by hand by me, from drawing to needle-felting to sewing, using felt from Etsy shop FeltOnTheFly and wool roving from FiberInfusions and WoolPets! The label was custom made by BoodyBabies. I LOVE to shop on Etsy.

This tame little chickadee is looking for a hand-out! Take her home today.
