All the Little Birdies

Hi, Jane here, aka Current Girlfriend. Sewing Mary's Bird blocks was sew much fun! I had such a good time that I sewed a whole flock, some to keep, some for gifts and 3 for Mary. I decided that the personalities come out in the beaks and the legs, so I tried some variations.

Spotted Grosbeak
Starry House Wren
Buttercup Bunting
Here is a photo of my flock:

I ran out of the wire print in the top row, so I borrowed the idea from the tutorial to use sky fabric. Those blocks will be for me. I think any low volume print would work for the background, and I want to try lots of different fabrics now that I have "bird flu".

Mary's question is what am I passionate about. Of course quilting and sewing, I do that every single day. Sewing is my happy place. But my passion is healing. Emotional, Spiritual, Physical. I was a nurse for 25 years. I have done a lot of personal work on my own healing. I never promote my abilities, but rather live by example. My latest healing endeavor has been to apprentice and become an herbalist. It gives me a lot of joy to work with the local plants.
