Button Up Birdies 9 Chart

Collect all of Cathy Jean's ‘Button-up Birdies’, and by Christmas your Tree will be covered with these adorable ornaments! The tropical looking Summer Tanager is bright and colourful, although some are blue or even black and white. They love fruits and seeds, as well as flying insects, and build little cup-like grass nests in the trees, among the leaves and branches. The high-flying thrush has just come back to earth to eat some delicious blueberries! Dune coloured but feisty, this shy bird sings the most beautiful melody in my woodland garden, never mind all over North America! All Button-up Birdie ornaments are quick and easy to stitch so you can use them for other gifts as well. They are designed with gentle overdyed cottons and many different silks in soft shades. Stitch all 18 and use them in a quilt or wall hanging! Finish the way you see, or use your own imagination!

 Collect and enjoy your Aviary Tree this Christmas!
