Wendymoon said...

Ooh, I love the fancy peacock and the cardinal! I wonder if my parakeet would like the birdhouse or if he would befriend the budgie? LOVE birds, hope I win! :-)

Anita said...

Our flock embroidery sounds like it would be a great on the go project.

Oh my goodness, I am having the hardest time choosing just ONE. But one can only do one at a time right? So Id choose the bird on a perch makeup bag. Thanks for the chance!

I would probably make one of the little stuffed birds to put on our nature table--in a real birds nest we found. What a cute book!

Definately the Fancy Peacock - my 2 little girls loved it, so I'd have to make 2 of those first or I'd never get anything else done!

I would make the little round bluebird first, and would probably make variations on its size and different colours, it's just too cute.

cougcacher said...

I am a creative person, therefore one would think me crafty (I so want to be crafty.) Last summer I bought embroidery thread to make some tea towels, and some fabric to make a quilt, but I don't know where to go with those tasks next (but I have great ideas.) This book, and the chance to make the OWL WALLHANGING seems to be a nice marriage of the two projects that I'm nervous to start.

Anonymous said...

I would like to start by doing the blue peacock, it´s so cute!!!!. I love birds, and my house needs some craft decoration right now!!!!!

There are so many wonderful projects that I think there will be a few that I will be making but I am a sucker for owls so the first project I will be doing is Edward the Owl and friends.

Ali said...

There are so many cute projects, I don't think I can choose just one. But the Birds on a Wire Quilt and the Little Birds Quilt are adorable (especially the fabric choices). I also love the Bird on a Branch Makeup Bag. I can't wait to start crafting from this book for my little boy, my friends, and a maybe little for myself. ~Ali
