I made my week’s goal of sewing 3 new birds to add to Birds of Beebe Woods! I was so determined to get them done, that I didn’t pause to take photos along the way. They are all approximately life-size. Here’s the show-off male goldfinch.
I love the way the little nuthatch hangs on facing downwards.
And our own Massachusetts state bird, the darling chickadee. It’s time to work on the background now. I’ll be checking in as the piece progresses.
Update: Posters and cards of Birds of Beebe Woods are available in my Etsy Shop.
They are beautiful! I can’t wait to see this piece finished!
Your work is unbelievable! The little nuthatch is one of my favorite birds!
Amazing… as usual. I have a question, “Is it quiet when you are working, or do you listen to music?” Also, “What time of day do you do your best creating?”.. Thank for for sharing. You are a gift.
Love seeing each new bird. Just beautiful. They almost look real.
Your work is so finely done!!!
Very beautiful birds, I love all the detail!!
OH! i LOVE THESE! Great work Salley!
Congratulations for such beautiful needlework–and for bringing these sweet birds to life in fibers! Truly..so realistic! You really have captured their personalities so well. These are frequent visitors at the feeder and watching them is a joy so seeing them like this really makes me smile!
Wow! What a pleasure to see such a beauty! Thank you for sharing.
To be greeted in the morning with one of your wonderful posts is a great start to the day, what an adorable little bird, your work is fabulous.
These are wonderful! I love watching birds and your fiber birds look like they could fly right out of your studio. Thank you as always for your wonderful inspiration.
Again, truly awesome and inspiring! Please post again when this piece will hang in the hall at CLOC…and for how long? Thanks again for keeping us posted along this amazing journey of ultimate “bird watching”.
Pam, I hope that you have a chance to see the show(s) at Highfield this fall. Sept. 18 – Nov. 16, 2012 – The Intimate Woods at Historic Highfield Hall in Falmouth, MA (Cape Cod).
This is a lovely piece. I love it as an embroiderer and as a birder. I would love to see it in person, but don’t suppose it will ever come my way (West Coast of BC).
Just reread my post. Too many loves in there! But I do think your work is amazing
Your work is so lovely and so much work put into those sweet birds!
Can’t wait to see the final piece.
Your birds are magnificent.
The birds are wonderful!
Awesome, you and your work are just awesome!
You are a magician with thread and fiber. In your hands stitched fabric evolves into three dimensional dreams. I am in awe.
I am still hoping that there will be a Beebe Woods poster in the near future so I can make a gift of one to my dearest “almost daughter”, Kate Beebe. I marvel at the coincidence of her name and the title of your piece along with the avian theme. Kate is an expert in bird genetics and a scientist who is expecting her first baby (a girl!) this month. I will be following your progress on this project with great interest. You are the best!
Thank you Cathy. I plan to have a poster made when it’s finished and photographed.
All of these birds are regulars at our feeders. It’s great to see how wonderfully you captured them in thread.
These are just exquisite!
I just love the detail that you have a put into each bird and every little stitch that makes it so true to life.
I am in awe of the magic you stitch. Your books have given much joy to my family.
These are so beautiful, I love the detail and really appreciate the time you took.
Unbelievable and beautiful!.
The nuthatch is just wonderful. We get nuthatches in our garden, and it always amazes me how these birds can eat peanuts while hanging upside down! The stitching on your birds is so neat, they’re just stunning.
These birds are amazingly beautiful! I can’t wait to see everything once you’re finished:)

Trabalho maravilhoso! Parabéns, fiquei apaixonada!
This is such beautiful work I just had to comment! I would absolutely love to be able to stitch as neatly and realistically as this! Absolutely gorgeous!
Amazing and inspiring work…glad someone posted this on Pinterest. Happy to discover this blog.
How FUN to discover you online after reviewing a lot of very humdrum felt birds and animals that look so elementary compared to your elegance and finesse. I can’t wait to see what comes next. Happy New Year!
Welcome Lynne! I’m happy that you’ve found this site and will be following along on my artistic journey.
