Thursday is my day for the "For the Birds" hop ...
I am pleased to have you join me and my
feathered friends ....
Did you know ...
that the first mention known of the Bluebird of Happiness
is in a play written in the early 20th century by Maurice
Maeterlinck entitled L'Oiseau Bleu?
Happiness, as the moral of the story imparts,
comes from seeking rather than from finding.
Happiness comes from an unselfish life,
without thought or motive of reward.

Using Amy Bradley's Meet the Tweets Pattern,
I made the Birdwatcher wall hanging:
I believe this birdie is waiting for
the occupants to return home,
wouldn't you agree?
I seriously considered doing the Birdwatcher
in blue, but the green just seemed so happy
that I had to go with it, and besides,
green is one of my favorites, so it works
And, to go along with my Bluebird theme,
I used Amy Bradley's pattern again
to start this wall hanging:
Obviously, "start" is the operative word ...
I do need to do the stitching on it and
you can possibly see on this closer picture,
that I have the stitching drawn in ...
progress! :) I just didn't get all of it
done in time for our tweet hop ...
but never fear ...
I will have my Bluebirds of Happiness!
in fact my daughters have each named
one of the birds for themselves, me, and
our dog Izzy. Perfect!
I thank each of you sincerely for visiting today
and will do my utmost to respond quicker than
I have been lately ... I truly do appreciate the kind
words ... please never doubt that!
hoppers ... please be sure to flit on over to each of them
to share your kindness ... the bluebirds will be watching!
