I was making Liza’s butterfly when I found this bird pattern on one of my craft blogs. I knew I wanted to make it and combine it with this quote:
Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those who sang best.
–Henry Van Dyke
I’ve been working on them almost since I finished the butterfly.
I’ve actually finished eight of them, but two of my first efforts went to Eli’s friend Will because of his obsession with birds.
Why has it been a secret? I was saving them to give as gifts. Now that those gifts have been given, the birds are no longer secret. I’ll probably make some more to give as gifts but right now since I’ve finished the first wave, I’m taking a break.
