Dance With Me!

"Bird of A Feather Mystery Sampler"
by Brenda Gervais
35 WDW Confederate Gray Linen
My own floss conversion & NC "Style"

My take on making the bird an Eastern Bluebird.  I also "carved" my initials into the tree.  :o)

Love the little sheep and yet another "carving" in the tree.

One more look at the cardinals.

I can't thank all of you who stopped by to admire my progress or posted about my sampler on your blog.  YOU kept me motivated and made me want to finish this yesterday!  I really appreciate all the lovely compliments and encouragement.  I also want to thank Brenda for such a wonderful design and concept in the mystery sampler.  I do hope she will design another one for us next summer. 

Stay cool my friends - it is a scorcher here!
