Let Freedom Ring



When I first started stitching up this Eagle, I had planned for him to be a piece that would be hung. Then I decided he would be more versatile if he could be tucked into a vignette. So, I went rummaging through my collection of flea market finds to find him a perch and as soon as I spotted an old bell, I knew I need look no further. I just love how proud he looks.


He'll be headed over to Ebay tonight. Click here to see my auctions.

Love the eagle and sitting on the bell makes it even more special. Love the eagle. The wings are beautiful. I'm sure it was so time consuming. I don't know if I could have parted with it. Thanks for sharing
