Birds for Gram

Here's a little 'thank you' gift I made for my friend, Gram.
She heard I got a sewing machine & gave me some of her "how to sew" books.

Gram loves birds so I thought this project in my 'Stitch Alchemy' book would be perfect.

When the book arrived in the mail, I took it to her house to show her how the author makes
paper fabric & paints it before sewing it into something.

I was a little nervous about sewing the birds & I'm sorry to say one of the little fellows almost lost an eye in the process.

I mailed the finish project to Gram & her granddaughter tells me she hung it on her door. She's a lovely lady & I'm so lucky to know her. That Gram... now she is a REAL artist!
