Me and Birdies

I have such a strange relationship with birds. They terrify me! I don't know what it is the beaks, the wings, the fact that I have no idea what they will do. So I am a total scardy cat when it comes to the real thing, but as a design motif, an object, I really love them. Increasingly so.
Yesterday I came across Minori Designs, and just had to have a little birdy! I don't think I would use it as a pin cushion it's too cute, and the Liberty pattern, made for me. As a child my mum used to make me dresses and shirts and even a mini patchwork quilt for my little dolls from Liberty prints. So basically I am in love....

Ha! kinda funny, but I feel your pain. My mom told me they carried diseases when I was young, so I always think they are filthy, can't shake it, darn mom.
