I am a fiber artist, living 6 miles from Cody Wyoming, 50 miles from Yellowstone National Park, and 3 miles from Buffalo Bill Resevoir, where every morning I walk. We see everything from Grizzly Bears to the curious, sometimes loud Ravens. As an artist it is a beautiful place to be inspired.

Hummingbirds are thread painted as well as the flowers and leave. I actually used this as a sample in a thread painting class I taught years ago. I used fabric under the birds, leaves and flowers, I did not cover it completely. I now usually thread paint the entire subject. I found this in my sewing room just over a year ago and finished the thread painting, put the borders on and quilted it. It is on display and for sale at the Cody Country Art League.
