A-Z / K is for Kiwi

It's a colour and a food...

It's a Kiwi!

(It's also a bird...)

When I started this post, I was planning on using a nice and juicy, sweet kiwi fruit.  Something happened and this little kiwi bird was hatched.  I took a free motion / thread painting class and just had to create something for my alphabet book.  During my research to find a photo of a kiwi, I learned that kiwi birds are about the size of a chicken.  I had always imagined them to be the size of a kiwi fruit.  I wonder how many other things on this planet that I am wrong about?


  1. Love your kiwi! Great idea to create an alphabet book.

  2. Thank you! It has been a fun project.

  3. Cute embroidered kiwi. The stenciled page behind it caught my eye.

  4. Hi Cheryl,
    I'm rugged up with my laptop and trying to catch up on A-Z posts and have been drawn into your blogs and am really enjoying your visual creative expression and wondering if there is hope for me... That cropped up during my A-Z series of letters to dead artists, which has made me appreciate how I let my fears of making mistakes prevent me from delving into art. Such a shame, but at the same time, I'm such an obsessive writer, that I don't have a lot of spare time.
    Anyway, I'm feeling I need to get back into it.
    Best wishes,
