Deep South SNOW?
On a roll after the Sawyer Bird, I thought I would make a DiNozzo Bird. DiNozzo is basically brown with white points. That means he has white feets. This bird has white dots.
I searched for a set of McGee fabrics. But I wasn't happy with whatever I was coming up with.
DiNozzo is a basset hound, so this bird has really short legs. Here he is next to Long Tall Sally.
I decided to make a second bird because I didn't know that I would have time to do one today. This
baby was green. I don't know what he was patterned after, I just liked the scrap of batik leaves I found in the scrap bin.
See his knobby knees! And he is a left facing bird.....wait, right facing bird. LOL.
You have no idea how difficult it is to do something sdrawkcab. That is backwards if you hadn't figured that out.
So I guess he is a Drawkcab Bird......
In my bag from the Modern Guild Show And Tell Lotto winnings there was this tiny stack of fabrics. See the name on the package?
I spent a bit of time last night making half square triangles for the blank areas in the bird blocks.
I have to show you that photo tomorrow.
Meanwhile, it is going to snow tomorrow. Here. In Baton Rouge. Last snowfall was 4.5 inches in 2008. The whole city is shut down and we are acting like this is the end of the world.
And I hit upon something for my doorway piece. Remember that for tomorrow.
