I think everyone in blogland knows that Jenny and Wendy are hosting a Birdcage Week-End Sew-In. The creations are FABULOUS. I didn't take part in this one, between having too much to do and not wanting to do any fiddly sewing. But as I looked at all the creations, I really wanted my own bird. So, last night, I drew one.
And I'm sharing it with you. You can get the pdf file here.
My little birdie didn't like staying in a cage, so I left the door open for her. She decorated her little home with lots of ivy. I think she's very happy there! I haven't stitched her out yet, but I plan to this weekend. Won't you join me? I think I will do her in redwork, but may make her sister in other colors. If you make your own, I would love to see!
And now I have a question for you. Have any of you ever straightened your hair, permanently? I've had it done at a salon, but would like to do it myself, to save big bucks. If you have done this successfully [or unsuccessfully!] I'd love to hear your story!
Have a great weekend everyone, I plan to sew until I can't see straight!
