Square #11... Happy Spring!

Just a sweet little bluebird of happiness atop a spring blooming tree. This one may be my favorite... so far. I might add a little tiny music note above his little beak. The border on this one came out a little wonky, but hey-- it adds to the charm, right?!

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments-- they mean a lot to me. This project has been so fun and I'll be kind of sad when it eventually comes to an end. (Don't worry, it will be a while longer!) A friend of mine asked me what I'm going to do with my sampler when I'm done stitching. I told her that some people will frame theirs, or make them into a pillow. I have a different idea though... and it will be a surprise! (Shhhh! Keep it a secret, Krista!)

Hugs,

Wow! I LOVE that one (actually I've loved each one that you have done)...and YES to the musical note...yes, yes, yes!!!
Since I'm doing a 1" for every year of my life, I think my kids will just drape it over my casket, course even then it will be quite tiny...I'm sure not bigger than 10x10...probably more like 9x10. :-)

Jill I've only just caught up with your little sample - it is so delightful, and the bird looks very chirpy.

OMGoodness... unsure how precisely I arrived to your blog, however it's definitely a feast for the eyes!

Absolutely LOVE your sweet lil' cupcake, house n' home sq., cuppa, BUT the nest with sweet eggs and bird branch are too much! Looking forward to seeing how you progress with your wee project.

Thanks for sharing,

Beautiful bird in the tree. I'm looking forward to hearing what you plan to do with your sampler when it's done - I don't know what I'll do with mine.
