Love Bird or Comfort Bird carving

12 June ’14

Today I was introduced to “Comfort Birds ” by Jean at my local hospice society .
Believed to have originated with Frank Foust and written about in Woodcarving Illustrated  Christmas Edition 2011. Frank himself has made and given over a 1000 birds. They have been widely distributed to people in need, bringing peace , joy, comfort and strength knowing they are loved and cherished by someone.

I found the best place to learn more and get a pattern is here

So lets get carving and join me in bringing joy to others with our skills.
