March BJP Bird

This is my March BJP 2011 beaded bird. Yes, I'm behind but that's ok. I'll finish all 12 at some point!! This is a Blackpoll Warbler and the bird design is from Helene Knott who creates some beautiful applique quilts. Check out here web site here.

This is just a closeup of some of the beading. Each of my journal pieces are around 9 1/2" x 12". Right now they are unfinished on the edges as I'm going to cut them down and attach each to gallery wrapped canvas. I'll paint branch's extending around the pieces on the canvas. At least that's my thought process now!


My January bird is here and February is here, in case you're interested in keeping up with this year's journals.


Sun is out today! Yippee! I'll be heading over to pick up some Parmesan pepper bread at our local market and Bob wants to run some errands as well. At least we won't be dodging rain as we go in and out of the car and stores! Tomorrow is breakfast at Dawn and Jeff's for Mother's Day (and it's their anniversary too!). Amber is spending the night with her aunt and uncle so she can help cook breakfast. Isn't that so sweet!! I'm looking forward to the food and time with all the kids.

Its beautiful Robbie! I like the idea of painting branches when they are all done. I love birds and thought of doing journals of thm as well. maybe another year. Great job on this one, I really like the heavy quilting too.

Well done, Robbie. This will be a magnificent collection once you are finished and have them all on canvas.
