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!
UPDATE: Now included in the BONUS Collection 2009
