I cannot remember

the name of this pattern. So if you
know who the maker is let me know.
Bev (located in my comments) has told me
that this beauty is the work of Luan Callery.
It comes from Johnson Creative Arts Leaflet
No. 84013 and that the leaflet is not dated. This bird
is so pretty that Bev probably stitched it also around the same
time that I did! It hangs in her entry.
Thank you Bev for the information! The only
thing I did remember about this pattern is that I stitched it
around 1985. And why that date sticks
into my mind beats me. It is about 16 inches
across & about 26 inches in length. It was
found in my attic rolled up in a
cardboard tube.
Thank you for visiting me!

I have this stitched and hanging in my entry - the design name is "Chinese Bird" by Luan Callery - Johnson Creative Arts Leaflet No. 84013. It is beautiful - you are right about it being in the late 80's - no date on leaflet - that is when I remember doing it.

Hello Bev,
Thank you for the name of the pattern. Apparently I lost the leaflet on this beautiful piece. I dont remember if it had a companion or not. I imagine that this piece looks stunning in your entry.

I will try to send you a picture of it in your email - or is there a way I could do it here?

Beverly, I would love to see a photo of your bird.
I dont know how you could post it here? Do you know?
But I will be happy to post your photo on my blog. Give me the address so I can visit your blog!

Hello Carolyn,
There isnt any telling what I find in my attic. My attic is full. I have boxes of stuff that I dont know what is in them. Ummm I hope my attic floor never caves in.

Thank you for the nice comment MiniBinoy. It is a pretty piece. However I am no longer into oriental designs. I dont know what I am going to do with it.
