Free as a Bird

As I highlighted last week, I have been sewing birds, a la the Spool pattern. I thought they would make a great mobile for a baby gift, and I finished my first one last night.

I realize the prototype always needs improvements, but overall I am fairly happy with the construction of this mobile. I have to thank Steve for his patience as I strung the birds on the embroidery hoop, as it took a lot longer to construct than I had anticipated and his arms got a little bit tired from holding the hoop.
