I love all your projects! I saw that it was you and got all excited.  Cheesy
The little bird is super cute (love the stick legs) Cheesy
And I like how you did the textured background under the numbers; it really makes them pop.
My pugs say hi to yours!

Laura!!!  How are them pugs of yours?  My puggins say hello back!  I love the stick legs too, that's what birdy legs always seem to be in my imagination. Smiley

and thank you all for your marvy compliments, makes me feel all fuzzy inside!  I haven't made anything in a long time cos I was on an all-time inspiration low, but just recently I've begun to get ideas again and it makes me so happy!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Awww!  That bird is so cute!  Your redwork is really cool too.  It totally looks like you've been embroidering for years.

That delightful bird is adorable, and I LOVE the red "blackwork." Looks like you've got a new hobby!  Wink
