Here's my winter hoop, a Cardinal I stitched for an avid bird-watching friend. Though we have Cardinals year-round, they moult in the summer and often go totally bald on their heads. But they look great in the winter with new plumage.
Hanging in my room,until the next craft show. It cost 7.00 from the Habitat ReStore, and was a shabby beige...rattan,maybe? I reattached the backing,and found a 1976 date. Spray painted it silver. Then,dug in the jewelry and beads. For an idea of size.
