In my post on Tuesday titled, Feed the Birds I told you about the love my father had for birds, in particular the cardinal.
My mother loved doing needlework projects, she embroidered, did needlepoint and enjoyed crewel work. I suspect that her crewel work of the cardinal on evergreen branch was made for my father's pleasure.
For the winter months, my mother's handiwork will hang on my living room wall. I wanted to share some photos of the cardinal she made.
