Making progress on my...surprise!
...it's a bird! :)
Ever since a friend of mine had a baby (about a year and a half ago - lol); I've become somewhat obsessed with starlings, as the baby's middle name is "Starling". I have no idea whether or not they had a European starling in mind, or whether they even had a bird in mind (!); but a European starling immediately popped into my head.
So when I found that bark while golfing, literally the first thing that popped into my head was "I should stitch this and put a starling on it." So (eventually) that's what I did. :)
It will probably be the beginning of a new bird series focusing on the birds of Ontario; but in the meantime, I've got to finish this one!
