Is it spring yet?

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, but the mountains of snow on the garden are still there.....This is a bird that I made for Patti's hidden treasures book. All of her pages are to be bird shaped (she provided a template) -- and the wings are pockets to hide goodies in!!! They are about 7" long. One "hidden treasure" is a button fairy -- I've never made one before -- but I think that I'll make more to hang on the Christmas tree next year.... The other treasure is hidden. Patti has to wait for the birds to fly home until she sees it!
I'm definitely going to make more of these!(32 days until the move-- today I'm preparing things to give away on Freecycle. Don't worry -- it's nothing you want)
