Birds of Happiness, continued

I made two more Birds of Happiness for my doll quilt for Doll Quilt Swap 9. The birds are about 3-1/2" - 4" tall, not counting the legs. Yes, I fussy cut the bodies to take the best advantage of the fabric and to make you think of wings.

This is Big Red. He's a jock. He was the quarterback on his high school football team. Now he's a successful business man who runs to stay in shape.Miss Violette is always happy and cheerful. She is very well loved amongst her friends, and the reason is simple, really... she knows how to keep a secret!I have not quite decided how to arrange the birds in my flock, but this is a distinct possibility.
I just have to fill in the empty spaces in the middle and the corners. I'm sure I'll think of something.



PS, could you please send a prayer to my Mom, who was admitted to the hospital last night with a pulmonary embolism? My family and I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

I love your pieced animals...I had to save a picture of your red fox a while back...I'm rather obsessed with foxes. :) As for the birds, you could maybe put a pot of gold in the center - after all, the birds are a rainbow. Or maybe a sleeping cat? Or a flower?

I will keep your Mother in my thoughts and prayers. I see these beautiful little birds circling around her head making her smile. It won't be long before you two are eating cake!

Take care of yourself Lynne.
