I love this design. LOVE LOVE LOVE these birdies.
Can you tell?
I'm making 5 table runners, and each runner will have 2 birds - I have yet to stitch down the applique, then embroider the details, which are beyond sweet! Think I'll be able to finish in time? I still have no clue what I'm going to use for the ornament, either a fussy cut fabric or a special Christmas button....both of which I have yet to purchase. And oh yeah, binding - what to use for binding!! I'm sure I'll figure it out. If you'd like your own flock, Jenny's pattern is available in her shop, just click HERE!
Do you watch much tv while you sew? The only show I watch on a regular basis is The Voice - don't ask me how I got hooked on it, but I watched the blind auditions and just fell in love with all the talent. Tonight, instead of stitching [final performances, I was nervous, didn't want to stab myself] I did this...
My gorgeous friend Cathy doesn't have time to crochet herself some dish cloths, so I offered. I love to crochet, and I don't have to look at it - so I can watch The Voice! Can't wait to find out tomorrow who wins!
My lovely friend O'Faigh sent me the darlingest Christmas gift....
and after I
A little reindeer stocking with gorgeous floss colors! And get this, I did NOT have these colors, and they go perfectly with Jenny's birds that I'm doing! How did she know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two of the skeins are missing in that pic because they're already in use - and now two more have been put into service! Thank you darling O'Faigh, you saved me a trip and the trials of matching colors under fluorescent lights! Not to mention MADE MY DAY!
Ok back to the coal mines, folks, I'll be head down needle up until these are done....so see ya later, alligator - in awhile, crocodile - gotta go, buffalo - take care polar bear - toodleloo, kangaroo [for my Aussie friends] - out the door, dinosaur - well, you get the picture. Wait, nothing rhymes with picture.....STITCHER!!!! That's me, a picture stitcher!!!!
