Amanda was working on one and I just fell in love. It lead to me researching Charley Harper and just becoming totally fascinated with his critters. Amanda appliqued hers, but I didn't want to invest that amount of time for an idea I had, so I dug through my wool felt basket and pulled out some likely colors. One of my favorite North American birds is the Cardinal ( you know that if you blow a kiss to one, he will carry it to your truelove? the poor birds around my moms house had to do alot of flying to and from Iraq). And Australia is FULL of stunning birds, but these Fairywrens always made me smile like a fool whenever I could spot them hopping around in the brush. I quilted the white linen to look like notebook paper and made a couple notes on the paper about the birds. I envision these being little wall quilts. If I get them finished I will add them to the loot I am bring to the craft show this weekend. I am quite nervous. I haven't done a craft show in ages.
OK, have a great evening.
