Bird of Hope



GiraffeDreams (Carol) here... I set out to make a Hope quilt, but it turned into this bird. I am happy with it, and it's appropriate to honor my dad, I think. He used to like to watch the birds at the cabin, although he wished they could learn to share and take turns! ("There's enough birdseed - you don't have to fight over it," he used to tell them.)

I have been meaning to make an Alzheimers quilt for quite some time, and now, thanks to Tonya, I have done it. I made this on my birthday, and it was fun to think of my dad while I sewed.

My Bird of Hope is in memory of my dad, Roscoe.

Love your bird ~ my mother used to say the same thing to her beloved birds (cardinals being her favorites and scrappy blue jays being her least liked)...
