Gold Finch by PS





Happy Memorial Day to all who serve us and those
who have served in the past. A special thanks to
someone dear to my heart in Heaven - Tom - he was
a Vietnam Vet - he was the man who raised me. He
is on my mind today. The pattern of the Gold
Finch's is by Prairie Schooler. Done on linen.
This piece is for an exchange.

The bird I was able to get a quick photo of was in my
back yard. He was eating a worm.

Your finches are very pretty. My mom gets finches at her feeder all the time, and they are such cute little birds! Lovely Robin too. They're so funny the way that they gobble their food!!
