Mary Simon Baltimore Album Block 1C

This is the block I prepped for the 6 week cruise this summer. The block features a brown bird. I happen to like birds with more color. One of the ladies discarded some scraps of brown bird feather fabric at one of our guild meetings, and I took them home, just in case.

Secondly, I didn't want to use cotton strings on the music instrument. This might be a mistake, and I might correct it later. But for now, the harp has metal (gold) strings. Blame it on my 20 years as a music teacher.
