Your Most Wished for Bird Pattern: Winner

Update 7/26/14: The winner is Lea Ellis!
The next bird pattern will be an indigo bunting! Stay tuned.


I’ve never done a giveaway here. My blog started as a chronicle of our life here in Maine for our family and friends – both longtime and new.

However, the reality of this blog is that I’ve had wonderful conversations with folks from near and far. Connecting over a common interest makes the world seem so much smaller. And, it warms my heart when people share the enjoyment they experience creating with my bird patterns.

So here’s an opportunity for me to give back to you. What bird pattern would you most like to see me design? Comment below with the name of the bird pattern you would most like to see that I have not already designed (you can view the archive here) – just one! I’ll randomly draw a winner and announce it here on Friday evening, July the 25th.

The winner’s suggestion will be the next bird I design.

  1. I love your bird patterns and have made lots of them. I’d love a female cardinal to go along with the male. Thanks for sharing your talent.

    Female cardinal! I’d love to do a matched set of my favorite birds… And the female’s coloring is actually my fav – over the flashy male’s coloring!

  5. Deena says:

    A wild turkey would be wonderful!

    Or a new world vulture, a grackle, a longspur, a roadrunner, a grebe, or a nighthawk.

    Thank you so much! We enjoy your birds so much!

    Golden Winged warbler

    I would love to have a wood duck pattern! But I also like the other suggestions people have made, especially the turkey. Thank you so much for all of your bird patterns. I really enjoy making them.

  8. Anita Smith says:

    A painted bunting would be spectacular! I have made ALL the patters so far, and I will appreciate whatever comes next . πŸ™‚

  9. Anita Smith says:

    I realized I already see a painted bunting – oops!
    Please change y my suggestion to a Striped Heron or Green Heron. I love waterfowl.

    I live in an area where Stellars Jays and Ravens, Black Phoebes, Acorn Woodpeckers and White Crowned Sparrows visit my front porch every day. We also have some Red tailed Hawks in our family. πŸ˜‰ I’d love to make these for our Christmas tree sometime. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your birds! Great owl collection! ? I didn’t see a Stellars Jay or an Acorn Woodpecker on that list. Or a Belted Kingfisher…lol How about those? Or shall I choose one? I’m never so good at reading directions. πŸ˜‰

  11. S Smith says:

    I would love to see a Wild Turkey pattern!!

  12. Sam Normand says:

    A female Cardinal, an Osprey or a Snowy Egret, please.
    Or maybe a Rhode Island Red Rooster.

  13. Janet Sutherland says:

    Know it is not your usual, but how about a Woodstock lookalike from Peanuts. I work with a church group all year long to make Christmas ornaments for our fair in November. Your bird patterns are outstanding. Thank you for sharing them with everyone.

  14. Randy says:

    I would love to see a flamingo, vulture, turkey or roadrunner.

    Your patterns are amazing.

  15. Susan says:

    Yellow headed blackbird please!
