I looked out the window this morning and this is what I saw! Yikes!
So, I thought I better get busy and think some Happy Spring Thoughts! The next block from The Civil War Bride inspired me to think Spring!
First, I started with the branches and a few little leaves.
Then I added more leaves.
…and some more!
Next, I added the bird’s feet and the underbelly of the bird. (If you let your imagination run wild, it looks like a folk art kind of bird…but just wait…!) I used Ultra-Suede for these tiny pieces because they are really….tiny! When using Ultra-Suede, I just cut out the pieces without adding a seam allowance and stitch it in place. Easy peasy!
Next came the rest of the bird.
Then, I auditioned a few nests. Should I choose Nest #1…….
Til next time….
