Itty Bitty Birds


Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them? Rose F. Kennedy
Not my usual color choices, one of the pieces for my Itty Bitty Valentine Swap partner who loves birds and dark colors.

The itty bitty theme is for a tiny little 3 inch square, not a whole lot of space to do much but just enough to squeeze on this lovely piece of fabric featuring black velvet motif of birds.

And for everyone who is going to ask what I backed this one up with

A tag cut from calligraphy text bird poem and a bit of mail art.

In this life we can not all do great things but we all can do small things with great love. Mother Teresa
