Our bird has flown home

The final step in our Mystery Classes is when my piece returns from the finisher.  I am pleased to announce that Mama Bird is home and safely guarding her nest.


She resides happily in the shop so that you can visit her anytime.

I had Karen from Zecca make even more buttons to as she says "make the nesting bird even fancier".  The fun buttons are attached to corner blocks on the frame and one center bottom.








I have a few sets of buttons if you would like to add this element to you bird. They aren't all identical but they are fun. 

Karen the brilliant designer from Zecca hasn't seen the finished piece yet.  I think she will be pleased.  Just look at the fun and inspiration in her booth at market.  You can see why she inspires me. We may just have to do another Zecca mystery!

Congratulations on a wonderful ending to your Mystery Bird. The framing is gorgeous. Zecca's buttons are the perfect touch. Her designs are really fun to stitch.

Hi all

Glad you like my framing choice. It was such a special piece it really needed a special frame.
