Challenge, part 2

Is this less scary? Not so gloomy and creepy anymore? I Put A Bird On It!
This bird came from the focus fabric and I cut around it and needle turned it down. I was going to lose the legs, so I just embroidered some new ones. And I think they look even better!
Part of the Challenge is to use four of the six fabrics provided. Here you are seeing three. The script background is one. The bird is two. That little tiny flange (influenced by Lynn) is three.
I can add two of my own fabric and all the embellishments I want. So My first fabric is the tree brown branches.
I inherited these gold flowers from my Grandmother. They've been in my lace box for years! Originally they were a strip of lace, I just cut them apart and Presto, blossoms! I just love that bit of sparkle.
My next step is to make a border of flying geese, but I've run out of fabric. So I called and will be receiving more, within 7 to 10 days.
But don't worry, I'll keep busy! I still have my baskets to finish quilting and I have some stars to make, so I'll be busy.
Today Gail and I are getting together and since it's Summer vacation, that means we have all day, not just after school hours (Gail is a teacher in her spare time and I have to share her with her students. Kind of a bummer on some days, those pesky kids!).

So have a wonderful Wednesday and I'll see you here tomorrow.
Take care, Brandie
