Cardinals into the Cottage on Cushions

There are so many different birds around the cottage and I am sure at your place too.  Their songs are lovely and they are so relaxing to watch.  Sometimes they can however wake you up hours before you want to with their chatter.  But still.....

These 2 cardinals came from a picture courtesy of  thegraphicsfairy and I used the CitraSolve method to transfer it to a piece of heritage cotton.

I used 2 of my favourite green fabrics to sew up a new cushion cover for the cottage. 
 this is the overlapping back opening...
There was a time only a couple of years ago that I didn't see birds as decor for my home.  Now I'm loving them totally.  What about you?

My week has gone quickly and I wonder whether Abby is in her favourite position lying on her back waiting for a tummy rub wondering when I'm coming home.  Just a couple more days Abby.
 Have a wonderful day... Judi xoxo

Beautifully created pillow, Judi. I so love the birds & treasure every single moment they visit our feeders. Could sit for hours just watching them. Love your fur-baby.

Have a beautiful weekend ~

You better hurry up and get home to little Abby! I, too have always loved birds...I was going to decorate with them more when a friend told me to be careful about using too much bird stuff...and it scared me to where I didn't do any!!! That was dumb! One day when my house is not being torn apart by grandkids, I will add some birds in my whole new decor!!! I am dreaming of it one day!!!
Love your cardinal pillow!!! Especially the green fabrics...very fresh and modern, Judi!!!

Hi Judi
I LOVE your bird cushion. I don't have many bird patterns in my home but I definately need to get some.
Your Abby will be so happy to see you I am sure.
Have a great weekend.
