The Little Bird


Here is the little bird piece finished. This was made especially for someone, so I hope she likes it. The snowflakes are embroidered French knots. There is a tiny little piping just inside the edge of the binding in a red-brown color. The finished piece is about 9 inches square.
The Oregon Junko is sitting on a Douglas Fir branch. They are such sweet little birds.

    Yes! Someone really does like it. OK, someone's daughter likes it, but I'm sure my mom will love her birthday present as well :-)

    That lucky person is me! I am admiring the beautiful little piece right now. Your photo is nice, but the real thing is even better. I love the sweet little bird, the warm quiet colors and the perfect execution. Now that I have moved to Oregon, I will have to watch for the junkos. Thanks so much for the birthday present that my daughter ordered from you. – Sherrill
