2009 June Bonus Pattern

0100_1628vh09

Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places.  

I recently found this colorful bundle of wool yarn at a thrift shop downtown likely remnants from a needlework kit.  And I might add, quite a find for a quarter.  Score!

Then, the following week I wandered into another thrift shop and behold--I found a set of old crewel-work Vogart patterns sitting in a basket. I tell ya, sometimes it's uncanny how these things happen.  

At that moment, I knew immediately how I would use the yarn and stitched this little bird motif.  I liked it so much that I decided to include it with the June Bonus patterns.  Happy June!
