Little Miss Shabby had her birdie for February posted on the first. I downloaded it, put it on fabric and then got to the embroidery. I only do hand stitching at night time so it took two nights to get it done.
When I wrote about these blocks last month, I said I had thought about doing different kinds of birds. I started! I did cardinals this month. Its the only red bird I know, truth be told. Its native to my part of the world and its one of Karl's favourites.
Okay, the great unveiling.................................ta-da
Mine is different, but you knew it would be. I didn't like the hat on the head of "himself" so I dropped that. I only did two hearts on "herself" and I gave "sir" some tail feathers. I didn't give him elaborate tail feathers.....for a change the female is the beauty of the pair IMHO.
Next up is Gloria's.......
Don't you just love the cheerfulness of this block?
And now Lynda's.........
I love the three hearts on the bottom of the block. It adds a bit of interest, doesn't it?
