Cardinal Birdie

I have just completed the cutest project.  Thanks to Lucy at Attic24, she has some clever ideas.  I did a version of a Cardinal bird since they are so popular here in the Midwest.  I just love the vibrant color of the male, especially against the whiteness of snow.  Just spectacular.  You can see my is in front of our soon to be jack-o-lantern.  
I am going to make a Dove Birdie for Christmas too.  It was a lot of fun making the cardinal and I can see a whole flock of birds nesting in my house soon.  My cats should be really confused.  You should give this project a try!

I've Been Inspired

    I am updating my blog and hope to keep up with posting on it more often.  I have many projects on needles and hooks.  Baskets overflowing with beautiful yarns and even more projects floating around in my brain.  Many neat books and magazines to inspire the creative juices.  I am really enjoying the Ravelry scene and checking out all of the amazing blogs out there in blogland.  It's awesome to see so much talent in the world!  I love the internet for this reason - brings people of all walks to one gathering place to share their passions of creativity!  

     This is a good start.  Will have to work on getting my project and pictures organized for posting on the web here.  Hope you are having a great day.  Wish me luck...
