I had this idea for a collage with a blackbird, paper, buttons, fabric, a bit of embroidery but my embroidery skills are lacking, I'm in fact quite terrible at any hand sewing. Perhaps that's why I like making the primitive style dolls, they don't need a lot of hand stitching and what they do need doesn't have to be neat and tidy. I may try again another day but for now this collage shall be tucked away in my file of things I hate now but might not hate later on.

and while we are on the theme of blackbirds I adore this clip of Dave Grohl singing blackbird:

Oh really you can't hate it!!! I love it!!! You are so talented. I never would have thought to mix the fabric, doilies, paper and buttons. It turned out great!
