The Last Bird

This is the last bird I'll be making for a while. There's a huge project that will be/is taking up my time that will be revealed soon.
I can hardly comprehend the number of people from all over the world who have shown interest:

10,857 have gone to the pattern site
1,132 have downloaded the pattern

If anyone has made birds from my pattern and would like to share them through this blog, please send me photos or a link. I find it interesting that even though all the birds I have seen start out from the same pattern, each one ends up being unique to its creator.

There are a number of birds that I've created and are for sale at three galleries:
Good Goods in Saugatuck, Michigan
Cliff Dweller's in Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Morris Gallery in Sweet Water, Tennessee

That's what I find so fascinating about textiles - each one of us has a different way of expressing ourselves. The bird shape is so good and lends itself to individual interpretation. I will be back to find out about your forthcoming 'huge' project.

I love your birds and they are still on my to-do list. Soon I hope. Good luck on your big project.

Your birds are so unique and fabulous that it doesn't surprise me one bit that the world is 'beginning' to discover you and your talents! Can't wait to see what magic act you next pull from your artistic sleeve!
