The birds are finally up!

The last block in the bird RR that I participated in early this year was to be finished by me, but when I was at the retreat in September, I asked my friend Gerry Krueger if she would do that one for me. She graciously agreed, and sent it back to me a month or more ago. I found a shadowbox frame at Salvation Army that had a square of handmade paper inside it that was exactly the right size for the little 6" block. I glued some batting onto the paper and was able to stretch the block over it (it had a hard backing on it) with 1/4" to fold to the back side and glue down. I think I spent $1.99 on the frame, and I was thrilled with how it came out.

So just before Christmas, I got out the bird wall hanging and rearranged items on the wall to fit it in. I also was able to hang my "Wolverine" painting that Michaela did for me for Christmas last year. Quite a grouping, don't you think?
