Rug hooked birdie

I'm starting a new rug hooked birdie. Inspired by Mary Stanley's birdies. I will stuff him and apply a little fabric hanger at the top. He could hang over a door knob, or whatever. And, of course he will be sporting a striped party hat. I bought some more wool today, and I can't wait to get it. It's an orangey/earthy color with a small grid pattern. I also ordered some more monks cloth. I always need to have it on hand when the inspiration hits me. I was hoping to dye my first batch of wool this week, but I haven't found the time to do it yet. Projects are spinning in my head,,,,,,and there is just not enough time to do them all.
