Anne Marie and the owner of BF Goodstitch are going to stitch Gone with the Wind together and Anne Marie's blogging about it.  She started with Scarlett's skin and handed out some great tips along the way.

Making a Sewing Bird, Step by Step

Are you familiar with Melissa Shirley's Stitching Birds series?  It looks like they are discontinued but Melissa still has some in stock.

You will want to see how Sue made up her sewing bird.  It's fascinating and makes me understand that professional finishers are worth every penny.
