Bird # 1

In 2009 I purchased a set of bird patterns and fabric monthly [ BOM]. They have sat in my workroom going nowhere, so last week I decided it was time to make them. This is the first one I have attempted. It has so many really tiny pieces, but I love it.. now to complete the other eleven plus the four woodland scenes through the seasons.

The pattern and kits were bought from Silverlinings.

Beautiful! I love Silverlinings patterns. I just got the jaguar pattern and I'm in the process of picking out my fabrics.
