I'm Busy

My friend, Alicia, is visiting for ten days and we're busy making birds. We've made enough so far to have a flock as the center piece for a small dinner party tonight. I'll be back to tell and show more after she leaves next Friday. We're off to picnic on a stream in the mountains tomorrow. She and I always find a lot to keep ourselves busy and "on the go".

I will be sharing about how I figured out to make these birds. The original idea is from Terry Grant's blog:

I loved The birds when I first saw them on Terrys blog. These are so colorful and happy. Can not wait to see how it is done! The tulip quilt in previous post is such a happy spring time quilt! And the dogwood blooms!!!! sigh, I am still waiting for mine to find out spring is here.
