My creation

on a soft autumn day almost one year ago
a friend . now ring designer
was my first sale in a small shop


I continued creating
at a smooth table by a window
overlooking the garden
in all seasons


as the leaves once again
dance in the autumn breeze
I cut and stitch "six months . simple BIRDs"
each unique design sent with a hug from my space
to you or someone you imagine may delight
in receiving a simple bird
in their mail box

I think my link to your blog has been broken for awhile. I have missed that peaceful feeling of visiting you and your birds, ELK!

Congratulations on your anniversary. I received my fall package and I am thrilled with my goodies. I was so hoping to have a denim heart or a bird, so excited when I saw them. Thanks for everything. My package to you should arrive on Thursday. Sorry for being a little tardy.

maccandace said...

That is such a cool idea and I can't imagine anyone not being excited to receive those lovely birdies. Reminds me a little of mail art which I used to participate in heavily (but that has fallen by the wayside with blogging, etc.).
