I drew a pattern so I could cut out the pieces to fit our designated 16 by 16" size.
I pieced the door with two different browns. Later I cut out the window and laid the reflection under the door to create the window.
To see the other architecture pieces head over to Tangled Textiles!

When my husband and I were on vacation this summer we saw this amazing bird performing acrobats above us. He pulled out our bird book and identified it as a swift. It is somewhat related to the hummingbird although in many ways resembles a swallow. They are interesting birds to read about.
Their relationship to hummingbirds is evident as it hovers in the air behind this tree trunk. We wondered if it had a nest back there as it approached that spot many, many times after swooping around the air first. But when I blew the photo up it doesn't appear there would be room for a nest there. Perhaps catching bugs in the tree?
