I love it how these applique shapes take on their own personality as you make them, they end up being proper little characters. I can just about hear this bird chirping with glee. I have a lot of noisy birds in my backyard and I think it's really influenced a lot of my designs.

If you'd like to read more about my applique techniques, I have a link to all my Applique posts and you can find it on the top banner of this blog page.

and these are my birdy feet in position on the stem
