Your block looks lovelyl! Your grapes are so beautifully round.
I love your bird block. The grapes are perfect and your color choice is gorgeous. I too am going to put my bird going up....not down. I have read that a falling bird can symbolize a death...like the pale vultures, no groom etc....but I think it was just put in upside down. :) Like I have been known to do. Nice job.
You've done a beautiful job ! I'm going to follow your blog because I also love doing applique.
Your block is beautiful! I too did not like the bird looking as though it was up side down. But, I saw on a church the same bird and realized it is the descending dove. Between the dove, the grapes and grapevine, it is a very spiritual block. I have decided to follow her example and leave it upside down! I hope to finish more blocks in the new year - only 8 more to go!
