Bird Embroidery: Done!

Thanks in part to my new Project Plan, my gift idea for a friend’s birthday was actually finished on time!


Oh, wait, would you rather see the front side? : )

birds for Mo- full

I’ve loved this quote since I first read it:

A friend knows the song in my heart
and sings it to me when my memory fails.

And it reminds me of my friend Mo. So, she’s the orange and aqua bird.

I’m the red one.

And she “sings” into my life each day. Happy Birthday, Mo!


  1. This is so lovely! (I'm glad you included the back. Backs are just as interesting as fronts.) I LOVE how you did the birds and am gonna have to acquire this idea for one of my own thousand projects. Three thumbs up!

  2. That is so sweet. She's lucky with a friend who appreciates her this much!

  3. I love it - that is a fabulous quote. Great job as always, and congrats on making progress through your list :)

  4. It's so awesome. Did you just make from scratch or is there a pattern some where? What a treasure for Mo!

  5. Karin,

    Thank you so much for my bag. I LOVE it. I also loved the extra gift inside. Pink is my favorite!

  7. This looks so lovely - the back, too! And I really like the quote, it's new to me!

  8. Oh, this is very pretty! What a lucky friend you've got ... ;-)

  9. Thank you, thank you all for your sweet comments. Most of them arrived on my first day of having them flu - so a nice piece of sunshine! : )

    Suz - no pattern, just looked at other embroidered birds and branches, then sketched the birds and branches, and traced one of my favorite fonts (Larger Mine) for the text. I took a bunch of "in process" photos, none of which i posted so Mo wouldn't see. But perhaps, I'll throw those up here at some point...
