I have been working on a series of bird patterns and this is the first one. I can't seem to get a good picture of the female and I have a little more work to do on the tail and feet. She isn't as light as the picture shows. I have to thank my friend Marie who sends me so many pictures of birds. We don't have cardinals in Idaho so I didn't really know what a female looked like. They are too pretty to just save for Christmas. As with most of my pictures, this one hasn't been quilted yet. After I get through with the design I am ready to go on to the next one. I will have a weeks worth of quilting to do one of these times.
