I Love Cardinals

There is a Cardinal couple that visit my birdfeeder on a regular basis. Their colorings are such a contrast against the stark white of the snow in winter that they add a happy note to the seemingly too long winter.

A couple of years ago I decided to add some Cardinal decor to our home. Last year I started this wall hanging and have finally finished it. Now for fresh paint on the wall and I will be hanging it to remind me that winter doesn't last forever.

Too Much Snow, Must Be Time To Make A Snowman

Between the icy cold weather we've had and the snow that keeps coming back, you'd think I wouldn't want to remind myself by making snowmen. However that's exactly what I did. Quilted snowmen that is.
I found this free pattern on Debbie Mumm's website but I'm sorry to say it has since been removed from her site. While my piecework isn't perfect I still had fun making this wall hanging.

Just in case you're wondering what I've been up to, I'm working on other UFOs, taking online art classes and, of course, planning this year's veggie garden. And in a major move, my art table is now next to the window and I can't believe how spacious my studio looks. It is a much more inviting atmosphere to work in then before. I'll keep it this way until late in the spring when the sun shining in the window makes it too hot to be comfortable. I'll be out working in the garden instead of inside anyways.

May you all enjoy a wonderful weekend. Hugs!
