Looky what I found........

Anybody got a skinny wall space?  Do you remember "the birds"?  Well, look what I discovered amongst my stuff and I'm pretty sure you haven't seen this before:

Detail of flower

"Keep coming little wormy!"

Cute, huh?  I made this in May..................YES, in May!  I remember because (1) it said so in my computer when I loaded the photo and (2) I made this right before something really neat happened which is still a secret.  YES.......can you believe I've kept a secret this long?  My dear, dead mother would flip!  She always said I could NEVER keep a secret!  ( I tend to believe that she's helping me from above.  LOL)  You'll find out soon, my friends, I promise......but until then, I have to shut up.......before I blab it all over!  Mmmmmmm.........

Back to birdy......!  I'm selling this baby so if anyone has a naked skinny wall space that needs a bit of whimsy, let me know.  It's 11 1/2 x 25 inches long with a sleeve, dowel, and O ring all ready to hang and I'll even sign it if you want.  The first $49 plus shipping takes it home!  E-mail me please.

In the meantime, some doggy pics.  First off is Miya (my grandpup).  Actually the airhead, airedale owned by my daughter:

Tammy with Miya

And then, naturally, we have Toby.  What fascinates him so much about the pool cover, I'll never know:

"Any dead leaves under here?"

He even likes to eat it:

Wonder what he'll do when it's covered with snow?  UGH.......I hate to even say that word!

Until next time, my friends, I hope you have a marvelous week.  I'm planning to work on more ladies for the series.  Real ones!  Just wait until you meet Sandy, Jen and Julie!  You'll love them!

Oh, I particularly like this bird mini! I think it is a combination of the colors and the big flower. Great job! I am anxious to hear about the big secret!

Hi Carol! Your birdie is sooo cute; must be a huge secret you keep,that you forgot to post this adorable quilt. Hmmmmh, I think I have an idea about the secret...let´s see, if I´m right.
A PDF of this birdie (only the sketch would be enough ;o)) would be awesome!

Oh Shoot. I just found this. I have been so busy, and just had time to look at my blogs on Reader (265 to read)
I really was considering getting this bird. I love your work. A day late and a dollar short. ..
