I decided to keep the birds simple. Only a small bit of embellishing: a bead for the eye, colonial knots for the eyebrows and hand dyed rickrack on the wings. I keep getting tempted to do more....sometimes it's hard to stop or to know when enough is enough. I'm waiting for more rickrack which I'll use for the border. So I will put it aside for now. I have lots of kits to make for upcoming shows and need to get busy on that project. March will be here before I know it!
