It appears I’m gaining on the finished items for this year. I allowed the month of June for the Bluebird block for Audubon’s Christmas. I’m happy to say I pulled off the block in just a week.
The leaves were from the same fabric as the Chickadee block. The berries were bigger (and fewer in number) on this block so I decided to go ahead and applique them . They came from the scrap from a table runner backing and are actually supposed to be cherries in that fabric.
I added a fair amount of embroidery to the birds themselves.
