kreativ bluebird

I so wish that we had bluebirds. I know of only a few people that do have them in their yard & they say that they are so beautiful . I stitched this bluebird as a tiny gift for my great-aunt whom I love dearly.
I am also dearly flattered to have received this award from Twyla and Lindsey -- you must visit their sumptuous blog! It is such a fun trip through nostalgia & beauty! Thank you Twyla & Lindsey!

And now I am trying to narrow down my choices to 5 bloggers to receive this award from me......

I want to learn embroidery so bad and just don't know where to start! Do you have any ideas? This is just beautiful!

What a lovely bluebird. LOVE IT, of course. You are awesome. Wowsers, you always just come up with the neatest ideas. Your auntie with love it, I am sure. Glad you liked that fabric site, I found it thanks to another blogger. I felt like I got some steals on some of my favorite fabrics. So much I could with all of that yumminess when it arrives that I can hardly stand the wait. Hmm. It is hotter than the dickens here today, hopefully your tweens are getting some swimming in.

the embroidery on the bird is wonderful.

Your stitch technique so good - if I tried doing a lot of stitches close together I think I would find the work puckering. We don't have bluebirds here but yours is beautiful!
