A Bird’s Eye View

In my next life I would like to come back as a bird. Or maybe a tree. No. I think a bird would be more fun. Bird’s have beautiful feathers and sing thrilling tunes and fly around like they haven’t a care in the world. Yes, I would like to be a bird. Also, I like sunflower seeds.

We have one of those squirrel proof bird feeders in our backyard with sunflower seeds in it. If a squirrel grabs the bar around the feeder it begins twirling. And soon you have a flying squirrel! Don’t worry. The squirrels find plenty of sunflower seeds on the ground dropped by clumsy birds in their excitement over a free lunch.

For all of you who are as crazy about birds as I am, I have made this quilt, Birdland #17. It is a fused art quilt measuring 12″ x 12″ made with hand-dyed fabrics and threads and lovingly hand embroidered.  Click here if you are interested in adding Birdland #17 to your collection.
