I heard about Cooper's Flock on Susan Anderson's blog, and I knew I wanted to pitch in. Lucinda started Cooper's Flock in memory of her son. (Read more on her blog.) Her local children's hospital, where Cooper received treatment, performs 270 heart surgeries a year, and she wanted each of the children to receive a hand-made bird on the day of surgery. She's collected almost 400 in just a few months! Knitters happen to be nice people. These guys flew off to join Cooper's flock today.(Sorry the pictures are bad. They're hard to photograph.)
My friend Libby is having a little girl in a few weeks, and her nursery is decorated in a bird theme, so I made two for too.
