3D Lace Cardinal - Request of the Week
 

It is fascinating to watch birds zip and twitter about in backyard bushes and bird feeders with
fluttering wings, melodic chirps, and quick movements.  But, the birds don't come out to play everyday.  For those slow days, appease your favorite bird watcher with 3D lace cardinals!  Debi requested this project for her mother, an avid bird fan.  She says of her mother, "She loves birds,
and has multiple bird feeders to take care of during the summer!"  This free-standing lace cardinal decorated with intricate swirls and delicate wings is the perfect match for her!  Debi plans to use
them to hang in windows and for decorating her mother's holiday tree.  Thank you for the lovely
lace suggestion, Debi!
