Product Description

Tennessee selected the mockingbird (genus Mimus polyglottos) as official state bird in 1933, selected from an election conducted by the Tennessee Ornithological Society. Northern Mockingbirds are related to the brown thrasher and the catbird.

Mockingbirds have extraordinary vocal abilities - they can sing up to 200 songs, including their own melodious songs, the songs of other birds, insect and amphibian sounds, even an occasional mechanical noise. The mockingbird is considered one of the finest songbirds in northern America.

Tennessee recognized the iris (Genus Iridaceae) as the state cultivated flower in 1933. The iris flower comes in a variety of colors, but the purple iris is commonly accepted as the state flower of Tennessee. "When it's Iris Time in Tennessee" (by Willa Waid Newman) is one of Tennessee's state songs.

The approximate design size using 18 count fabric is 7.28" x 11.06".  Stitch count is 131 x 199.
