Bird Patterns

Hello friends!
I mentioned last week that I have a suitcase full of 1940-1950's patterns that I had purchased in an antiques shop many years ago.
I want to share them with you!
When I ask what patterns you would like for me to offer, the largest response was anything to do with Spring.
This I can relate to completely.....

Before I give you the patterns I did want to show you the variety of ways you can use them today.
They are not just for embroidery anymore!

Greater minds than mine have used their imaginations and came up with so many creative uses for these patterns.
Because there are far too many to share on this post I have created a new Pin Board titled Bird Crazy.
Please take a look if you would like to see some of the many other ideas.
Now all you have to do to save this pattern is to place your cursor over the pattern, right click and select 'save picture as'. You can choose where you want to save it. I always save mine in photos. It's just where I find easiest for me.
Even if you don't have the time right now, save it for a rainy day!
That's what I'm doing.
It is still cold here. We had a light dusting of snow this morning.
It could be worse, though.
My friends on the East Coast are getting Winter storms again.
I'm sure they are wondering when Spring will ever arrive!
