It's For the Birds!!

May 06, 2013

It's TODAY!!

Hey, everyone! Here I am, sliding in right under the deadline, as usual!

This started out to be a mini wallhanging - in fact, all the colors were chosen based upon the border fabric... that isn't on!

I decided that this is going to be part of a larger inspirational quilt/wall hanging.

I collect 'sayings' - some make me laugh, some make me think, some are advice I'd give to my grandkids. Most are irreverant. All of them mean something to me.

This is the start of something big, I can just feel it!

Go visit the rest of the bird-lovers on the blog hop - today's just the first day! Prepare to be impressed by everyone's inventiveness!


Thanks to Madame Samm again for the adorbs idea and to our cheerleader, Mary. I'm looking forward to seeing what else everyone comes up with!

Oh, this is kinda important:
I'm away from home, being indispensable from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. today (Tuesday).
I'll respond to each and every comment, I promise - but just not right away!

Your bird is precious! Her whimsical features brought a smile to my face...then the thought of her feasting on french-fries in the parking lot of a fast food place...laughter to start my morning! :) Can't you just see the workers faces if she popped by with a fry in her mouth?? :)
