According to the “Birds in Connecticut” field guide by Stan Tekiela the bird in the Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection: “Bird Seed” fabric used in my “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance” fiber art series could be the American Gold Finch “Carduelis tristis” (Male) 5 in. (13cm).
And, as I read the selvage edge of the wonderful camel fabric in “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance #8” (shown below) it states: “The smell of the ocean, the rhythm of the camel and the sounds of laughter fill my heart.” This fabric is made by Robert Kaufman “Jasmine “- design #16649 copyright Valoriwells. It comes in different color ways. I was also able to purchase it in shades of lavender and purple before the “Quilting By the Yard” fabric store in Vernon totally closed it’s doors.
NOTE: Like “Hay . . .#8”, we are getting some really hot Summer weather in Connecticut. In some states the Pandemic is getting worse, and I just heard on the news that wearing a cloth mask with 2 layers is one of the best protections against the spread of the virus. Fortunately, the masks that I have been making actually have an extra middle layer of thin cotton batting!
