I Love My New Bird Picture and There's a Giveaway at By Your Hands

I wanted to do something creative. 
Something that I had a chance of completing this weekend.
After looking around and the many things I have on my list to do I decided to do add some personality to a bird embroidery I had done a couple of months ago. 
I had been thinking about this for a while after looking at some of the creative projects people do on the blogs I have been reading.

This is how it turned out.

I had planned to hang the picture in our bathroom and bring some of the green and brown from the shower curtain to the
other side of the room.

This is what the picture looked like before adding some crocheted lace and ribbon and removing the glass.
I had the picture ready to hang but it
 just didn't look right

I took it out of the frame and just started sewing lace and
ribbon on it. 
 I am very hesitant to do things like this unless I have a
picture of something
 someone else has made to guide me.
Maybe I have taken a step towards individual creativity,
who knows what will happen in the future.

This could be fun!

I have linked this post to Metamorphasis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.  Take a look at what creative things other bloggers are doing.

I wanted to share a Giveaway you might like to check out here at By Your Hands
