Found It



As soon as I found the abalone birds, I knew what the overall design was going to be....and with so much going on in the background fabric, I decided a simple hand would work much better than one with it's own pattern. Not quite done yet, but close...

It seems hard to believe we're already 2/3 of the way through this year's bjp!

I really like the way this one is developing. But then, I'm a sucker for anything with birds ;- )

It is wonderful, Bobbi...absolutely adore the abalone birds you've added and the hand too! It is hard to believe we're 2/3 of the way through...don't think that I'm not freaking out!!! Ah, did you have to go and say it?!!! ~wink~

I've been thinking about you...note coming soon! Things are settling down and getting better here. I'm almost caught up with BJP...now, how to post about them ALL! *Simply* at this point.

Sending you a big hug...hope you are having a nice weekend too! I'll talk to you soon. ~me ;-)

thanks for all the kind comments!

I've had the birds for such a long time I can't remember where they came from...but I've decided to stop saving my favorite treasures for use "some day" and start using them now, so there may be a few pieces that go so far back I can't remember where they came from and a lot that I bought that are vintage and couldn't find more of even for myself...but I will be glad to share the ones I can remember.
