Side View...

Back View...
This "Bird" fabric is exclusive to this kit.  
I love this fabric, but it originally had a very white back ground
which I did not like!

So, I finally got up the courage to hand dye the fabric, 
I'm very relieved and pleased with how it turned out...hope you like it!

Five thread colors were chosen for this project.

The pinkeep is embellished with ribbon to cover the side seam
and also through the O~Ring.


Kits include one of these vintage rings.

Thank you token...
An antique bronze colored "bird cage" charm.

This is the fourth kit which now completes the

Food for Thought...
God has given us the freedom to fly near him, away from him or back to Him.
Exercise your wings wherever He allows you, listen to His voice and 
enjoy the flight.

Soul Food...

and the truth shall set you free"
