A red cardinal resting on my rolling pin!

Click for full size imageMy mother's favorite bird was the Cardinal... maybe because her favorite color was red.

I wonder if she knew that someday, my favorite color would be red.

The little red Cardinal was incorporated into my quilt, as a gentle reminder to me... of my mom's favorite little red bird.
