You must cheer a lot of people up with your thoughtful work and your kindness to your mother.

The pattern is for fused applique and then satin stitched around them. There was more hand embroidery in the pattern than I did. I used a close narrow zig zag for the legs and feet. The beak and eyes were suppose to be embroidered but I used a triangle piece of felt and tiny black buttons for the eyes.
