I've been working away on my Blue Birds rug and its finally finished. I had a lot of fun with this one--especially the background which was dyed with onion skins. I just took a class with Peg Kauffmann--she introduced us to proddy and I had a lot of fun adding proddy flowers and leaves to the rug. It meaures about 30" by 19" The design is taken from my collection of Blue Bird China.
I finished just in time! The back yard blue birds came and ate today. Its the same pair that we've had for several years. I was on the deck filling the feeders when I saw them on the blue bird house. I called them and they flew right over so I ran in and got them their first mealworms of the season. This morning they were sharing with the titmice-and it didn't seem to bother them. In the summer they have to share with the catbirds and they don't get along too well. They are callling for a winter mix tonight--nice way to start off the month of March. I guess it will be another in like a lion and hopefully out like a lamb year! Anyway-at least its on its way.
